Swing Night with Flying Home Band!
"High-order vintage-style swing, as versatile drummer John Mettam convenes a group of fellow local eclectics for a jaunt through the brilliant repertoire of Benny Goodman's various small ensembles." -Time Out New York

FLYNG HOME: PLAYING THE MUSIC OF BENNY GOODMAN

In the mid-1930s, Benny Goodman led one of the most popular musical groups in America, touching off the Swing Era. Goodman's bands launched the careers of many major names in jazz, and during an era of segregation, he also led one of the first well-known racially integrated jazz groups.

Performing swing gems of the 1930s-1950s, FLYING HOME personifies the Hot Jazz style and 'light on their feet' approach made famous by the Benny Goodman Sextet. Starting with a strong foundation in the classic BG repertoire and arrangements of the early sextet with Charlie Christian, FLYING HOME then explores the various incarnations of the band that made them a musical force for 30 years. Based in Brooklyn, New York, the 'home of jazz', FLYING HOME consists of top performers from the New England Seacoast and New York Jazz scenes; players who bubble with the excitement and spontaneity of the original Benny Goodman groups while creating their own unmistakable sound.
