Another Benny Anecdote
As told by Roger Kellaway
There are lots of Benny Goodman anecdotes, some flattering, some not so much. The pianist and composer Roger Kellaway got this one from bassist Michael Moore, who witnessed the event. Here’s Roger:
There is a rehearsal of the band in the house off the pool on Benny’s property. At one point somebody says, ”Hey, Pops, don’t you think it’s getting cold in here?”
Benny exits, goes to his house, comes back with a sweater on!
