Album: Together Again! The Benny Goodman Quartet.

Together Again was the first full reunion in the studio of the Benny Goodman Quartet (featuring the clarinetist, vibraphonist Lionel Hampton, pianist Teddy Wilson, and drummer Gene Krupa), and although they would get together on an infrequent basis over the next decade, this was their last studio recording. In general, the classic swing stars avoided re-creating their past triumphs and instead recorded veteran standards that they had missed the first time around.

25 - Solo Flight
"Solo Flight" is a 1941 instrumental song by Benny Goodman and His Orchestra. The instrumental on the Columbia label, featured guitarist, Charlie Christian, and was released in early 1944. "Solo Flight" peaked at number sixteen on the pop charts and was number one on the Harlem Hit Parade. The artistry of Christian's improvisational guitar work is the centerpiece of this famous Jimmy Mundy arrangement for the Goodman Band. Recorded March 4, 1941, but not issued by Columbia until late 1943, "Solo Flight" became a #1 record hit on Billboard's 'Harlem Hit Parade' (R&B) chart. An alternate second take has been widely reissued over the years, but this post is of the original commercial hit version.
