This release presents, for the first time ever on CD, Benny Goodman's album devoted to the compositions of Rodgers & Hart's The Sound of Music (MGM SE3810). Performed by an all-star tentet featuring Jack Sheldon, Bill Harris, Flip Phillips and Red Norvo, it contains the first jazz version ever of "My Favorite Things", taped nearly a year before John Coltrane's celebrated rendition. A live set by the exact same tentet recorded a week earlier (playing one of the tunes from The Sound of Music) has been added as a bonus.
