After You've gone Goodman Asmussen
A stunning performance of two musical giants. Benny Goodman and Svend Asmussen do an impromptu approach to the tune "After you've gone" .
Svend, obviously aware of Benny's skills, paricularily when in competition mentions to Benny: "Not too fast",
Benny smiles and replies "OK, you start".
I don't think Svend has to take a step back on technical skills.The musical exchange starts with a chorus of improvisation around the melody without any rhythm and then the full group brings it to one of the swingiest versions of this tune I ever heard.
After he had seen this clip a Youtube/Dailymotion friend from Germany wrote to drummer Charlie Antolini who told him that the other members in this band were American Donald Haas on piano, Austrian Harry Pepi on guitar, and Peter Witte from Stuttgart Germany on bass and yes, Charlie Antolini on drums.
