Jon’s research into Goodman’s Carnegie Hall Concert has kept him busy for many years
and continues today. Did you, your parents or grandparents go to the concert? Are
you related to any of the musicians? Do you have any interesting or unusual items
connected with that evening? Do you have any photographs tucked away in an album
somewhere that you would like to see published? Do you have any of the 16” AFRS
records of the concert?
The original album cover was designed by James Amos at Columbia Records, is he still
with us? Do you know anything about Wynn Nathanson, other than the commonly told
story that the whole thing was his idea?

Can you identify this man on the stage stairs at Carnegie Hall with Benny Goodman?
I am delighted to report the man above has been identified as Albert Marx. It was Albert who had arranged to have the concert recorded. Many thanks to Lee Cohen for his invaluable information.
