Composed by Edgar Sampson, "Stompin' at the Savoy" is an homage to the now demolished Harlem jazz nightclub described as "the soul of a neighborhoood." Although the song has become a jazz standard and multiple famed musicians have covered the song, clarinetist Benny Goodman made the most popular rendition of the piece. That's not very surprising. Goodman's cover captures the essence of those early-Jazz performances from the 30s and 40s. Something about the fullness in his performance makes you truly sad to have missed out on attending one of the lively performances that took place at this long-lost ballroom.
