Hot Club du Monde - 24th March 2016

Playing tracks by

Fletcher Henderson and Artie Shaw.

A Baedeker tour of international musical curiosities from the 78rpm era with Oliver Carter-Wakefield. This week: the third in a three part series looking at the life and work of pioneering bandleader and arranger Fletcher Henderson. Tonight: Henderson’s career during the early 1930s which saw him recover from a series of musical setbacks to lead one the best bands of his career. It was also a period which saw him begin a fruitful musical collaboration with clarinetist and band leader Benny Goodman. Utilising Henderson’s arrangements Goodman’s orchestra took the nation by storm and fundamentally changed the face of American popular music.
