Hardcore Goodman fans will always quibble about the song selection on a “greatest hits” package, but if you have to live with just one Goodman disc this is IT. Very good song selection showing from what was his best band.

Benny Goodman Biography by William Ruhlmann Jazz clarinetist who rose to become the pre-eminent swing bandleader of the 1930s, with an empire that launched many an act.
Benny Goodman, in full Benjamin David Goodman, (born May 30, 1909, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.—died June 13, 1986, New York, New York), American jazz musician and bandleader and a renowned 20th-century clarinet virtuoso.
Goodman broke with tradition by hiring Teddy Wilson to play with him and the drummer Gene Krupa in the Benny Goodman Trio. In 1936, he added the vibraphonist Lionel Hampton to form the Benny Goodman Quartet.
Benny Goodman was the first celebrated bandleader of the Swing Era, dubbed “The King of Swing,” his popular emergence marking the beginning of the era. He was an accomplished clarinetist whose distinctive playing gave an identity both to his big band and to the smaller units he led simultaneously.
