Sing Sing Sing – Wonders of New York

Here’s 12+ minutes of good old fashioned fun. Great song, accompanied by a lovely old film showing off New York City. Good stuff!

Benny Goodman: clarinet
Harry James, Ziggy Elman, and Chris Griffin: trumpets
Red Ballard and Vernon Brown: trombones
Hymie Schertzer and George Koenig; alto saxophones
Art Rollini and Babe Russin: tenor saxophones
Jess Stacy: piano
Allan Reuss: guitar
Harry Goodman: bass
Gene Krupa: drums
Composed by Louis Prima
Arranged by Jimmy Mundy (who incorporated “Christopher Columbus”, a piece written by Chu Berry for the Fletcher Henderson band, into the piece)
Live from Carnegie Hall, New York, 1938

(Visual accompaniment — “New York: The Wonder City” (1938) SOURCE

The film is a little longer than the song but well worth watching after the music ends.
