Swing, Clarinet feature
Mary Lou Williams wrote this arrangement of Jump Caprice for Benny Goodman, but it was not played. It is probable that this piece was a bit too hip for him, although by 1948, she would write several boppish arrangements for a Goodman small group with Bennys protégé Stan Hasselgard (the group also included tenor saxophonist Wardell Gray). This is a straight forward blues with lots of altered harmonies typical of the bop style of the forties. It can be opened up for solos.
