“Your Mother’s Son-In-Law” – Benny Goodman And His Orchestra (1933)

Columbia; New York, November 27, 1933: Charlie Teagarden-t/Shirley Clay-t/Jack Teagarden-tb/Benny Goodman-cl/Art Karle-ts/Joe Sullivan-p/Dick McDonough-g/Artie Bernstein-sb/Gene Krupa-d/Billie Holiday-v/Arthur Schutt-a.

Early Benny Goodman with the Texan Teagarden brothers and Gene Krupa!

An eighteen-year-old Billie Holiday takes the vocals.

Man, this track smokes–thanks to Arthur Schutt’s arranging. You may recognize his name from his piano work with the likes of Bix Beiderbecke, Frank Trumbauer, The Dorsey Brothers and Red Nichols.
