AIRED:
Danny's guests are Benny Goodman and Caterina Valente. Also with regulars Joyce Van Patten and Harvey Korman. Highlights: Danny & Caterina open the show with "I Hear Music", backed by the Earl Brown Singers. Caterina, Benny, Joyce and Harvey join Danny on a tour through the 1920's, the depression 1930's and the swing-and-radio 1940's. In a sketch called "Class of 1922" Danny plays Walter Murray, Joyce plays Mary Jane and Harvey plays Leonard, graduates of Mapleton U. It is in the depths of the depression and Walter is a drunk, Leonard is lucky to have a piece of pie at an automat where Mary Jane works at filling the little door trays. Leonard and Mary Jane try to reform Walter, once a brilliant law prospect. The "King of Swing" Benny Goodman performs with Danny, Tony Charmoili Dancers and Earl Brown Singers in musical numbers. Caterina sings "Hindustan". Benny Goodman plays the clarinet in "Poor Butterfly" and "The World Is Waiting For the Sunrise". Appearing with Goodman are Lou Levy on piano, Colin Bailey at drums, Max Bennett on String Bass and Al Hendrickson on guitar. Benny and his clarinet join Caterina and Danny in "Hi Ya, Sophia". Caterina plays guitar and sings bossa-nova nursey rhymes with Danny Kaye in the sit-down segment closing the show.moreless
