Fletcher Henderson- A Study In Frustration: The Fletcher Henderson Story (Columbia, 1994)

Recommended to us by Le Sony'r Ra, a transplant to this particular Earth-Variation who left on Goodman's 84th birthday as a joke. This Fletcher Henderson would not succeed in the same way as the others. Their strange pigmentation transgression would bring him little success in their America and would later require the colorless Benny Goodman to circumvent this and expose these dynamic compositional sophistications to the ignorant. Other Variations maybe take it for granted, but these three discs of Swing remain at a need for revitalization in this particular orbit.
