Benny Goodman je prvi veliki bijeli jazz glazbenik. Svirao je klarinet i imao svoj big band. U vrlo ranoj dobi naučio je svirati klarinet u Hull House bandu te počeo profesionalno raditi već kao dijete. Kada je imao 16 godina pridružio se jednom big bandu Bena Pollacka s kojim je snimio prvu ploču 1926. godine. Nakon smrti brata Davida, Benny napušta band te odlazi u New York. 1932. godine formira svoj big band u New Yorku. Iste godine je unajmljen za televiziju NBC i program «Let's Dance». S programom postiže veliku slavu te 1938. godine održava slavni koncert u Carnegie Hallu. Njegov orkestar je vrlo važan jer su u njemu po prvi puta zajedno svirali crni i bijeli glazbenici.
