Benny Goodman & Svend Asmussen - After You've gone
"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."
