Benny Goodman (1909-1986), the King of Swing, also played classical music on his clarinet with the Budapest String Quartet, and commissioned Bela Bartok to write a work for him to perform with the quartet.  Mr. Goodman died on this day in 1986.  For more information click here.  What did you learn today?
