This release presents the original two-volume album Benny in Brussels (Columbia C2L 16, first issued on two separate LPs, CL1247 and CL1248) in its entirety. Recorded during a successful one-week presentation of the Benny Goodman band at the Brussels 1958 World Fair, among its highlights are, besides Goodman's own brilliant playing, the presence of such stars as Jimmy Rushing, Zoot Sims, Taft Jordan and the then unknown pianist Roland Hanna.
