I belonged to the Columbia Record Club, and that’s where my records came from. For some reason, I was in the ‘jazz’ category. I got Benny Goodman records and Miles Davis, J.J. Johnson and Kai Winding, and that kind of stuff. I really was not a jazz guy at all, but I knew some of those names.
Leon Russell
As I am straight up and down, I make a good flapper. One of the highlights of my life was dancing the Charleston with Len Goodman in a nightclub in a cream, Twenties-style dress; it was the nearest I’ll ever get to appearing on ‘Strictly’.
Lucy Worsley
As for my band, well, my mentors were Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Jimmie Lunceford, and no one had a band more smartly dressed than Duke.
B. B. King
It’s a real honor and dream come true for me to be part of something as awesome as NBC’s ‘Community,’ working with such comic legends as John Goodman and Chevy Chase.
John Goodman is like the Jackie Chan of acting. Any prop that you put in front of him, he’s going to take advantage of it in some peculiar way.

The first memory I have was my sisters dancing to the radio when they played records by Benny Goodman and Harry James and of the sort. But the record that got me was a record by Derek Sampson, who was a young guy, called ‘Boogie Express,’ and it was boogie-woogie. Really, it was on fire, and that got me.
Jerry Leiber
I’m working really hard to get the clarinet out of that hole, that Benny Goodman thing.

John Goodman has such a good way of breaking the ice. He’s so good at being himself. A lot of people aren’t really good at that. He knows that he’s a legend. He knows that he’s one of the greatest.
Jason Mitchell
I got my training here in Chicago at the Goodman School Of Drama, and a lot of my personal work is usually internal work and stuff. Everything else that goes on is icing on the cake – your wardrobe, your makeup, whatever else you have to do.

I’m no longer going to play thugs or debauched cops that I can’t possibly make complex characters. I’m bigger than that. I owe too much to too many good people at the Goodman, Arena and Playwrights Horizons.
Isaiah Washington
I do duets with folks like Randy Goodman, Aaron Neville, Bryan Adams, people like that.

It’s funny, though, speaking of fathers and sons, because me and John Goodman played father and son, like, five or six years ago in the film ‘Death Sentence,’ and I got back with him again in ‘Inside Llewyn Davis.’
Garrett Hedlund
When I started at Ricci, I did street wear for very cool, young girls, but the price point was for the fourth floor of Bergdorf Goodman next to Carolina Herrera. My cool girls cannot afford it.

I’m old enough to have lived through a time when Martin Luther King Jr., Medgar Evers, Viola Liuzzo, Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner, James Chaney, and others died so people of color could vote.

Charlie Christian played amplified guitar with Benny Goodman’s quartet. He was the greatest guitar player that ever was. But he never looked up from the guitar. But I put a little dance to it. They appreciate seein’ something along with hearin’ something.

Every single tune you know from the 1940s until the 1970s was written, arranged, and demoed in the Brill Building. OK, maybe not every song, but writers from Benny Goodman to Lieber & Stoller to Neil Diamond all kept offices there.

I love Glenn Gould. Max Steiner. John Williams. Louis Prima. Benny Goodman. Miles Davis. John Philip Sousa.
Michael Giacchino
