Letters To The Editor King Of Swing

Posted: June 28, 1986

Your June 17 editorial "Long live the King of Swing" made me wistful and sad.

About 10 years ago, I saw Benny Goodman at the Temple Music Festival, and he required no introduction, nor was one given. His band started to play, and he walked out a minute later and no one had to announce, "Ladies and gentlemen, here's Benny Goodman." I think he must have been a very unassuming person.

Whoever wrote your editorial really paid tribute and said it all with the last line: "Move over Gabriel, the King of Swing is coming."
