Money was tight so when a chance to record and make a pile of dough doing transcription work arose, Goodman and his band rose to the challenge and blasted out these 25 gems (along with 25 others) in a single session, all one-take wonders. For this, the members in the band were paid the musician union's stipulated fee of a dollar per side, a true chunk of change by Depression-era standards.

Benjamin David Goodman (May 30, 1909 – June 13, 1986) was an American jazz clarinetist and bandleader known as the "King of Swing". In the mid-1930s, Goodman led one of the most popular musical groups in the United States. His concert at Carnegie Hall in New York City on January 16, 1938 is described by critic Bruce Eder as "the single most important jazz or popular music concert in history: jazz's 'coming out' party to the world of 'respectable' music.
