Swing music at its best TOP PERFORMERS
23 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a 1959 TV show titled "Swing Into Spring" and is a showcase for Benny Goodman and his orchestra plus top performers of the day...Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, Lionel Hampton, The Hi-Los, a young Andre Previn at the piano, Jack Lesberg, Shelly Manne, Matt Mattox and a new discovery at the time, 20 year old Donna Musgrove. She could really belt out a song as she was accompanied by the Hi-Los for the show. Guess she didn't have anyone to help her in show biz or decided to take another path in life. But she had singing talent, good looks and personality. I sometimes wonder what became of people like her. Benny Goodman said she had won an audition at the Iowa State Teachers College. Plenty of dancers too. The whole show is very professionally done and quick moving. See Benny play the licorice stick and Lionel pound that xylophone like vibraphone. Peggy & Ella give stand-out singing performances with classic songs. I found this video at a local flea market and slipped it into the VCR and I was glad I did. If you have an ear for rap music or heavy metal, you probably won't like this. However, anyone who can appreciate good music and classic talent will love it.
