OriginEdit

Benny Goodman was an American jazz and swing musician, clarinetist and bandleader known as the "King of Swing". Goodman grew up poor during his childhood. during a time he had 10 dollars, he had purchased the Clarinet from a local pawn shop. It is currently unclear who previously owned the clarinet however. In the mid-1930s, Goodman led one of the most popular musical groups in America, culminating in a monumental performance at Carnegie Hall on January 16, 1938. His efforts brought jazz to a larger audience and helped kick off the swing age of music. Goodman’s orchestras helped start the careers of many artists and included many black musicians in prominent roles when segregation was still the unspoken law. Other performers regarded Goodman as egotistical and willing to humiliate rather than nurture struggling talent.

EffectsEdit

Playing creates an atmosphere that quells discord between listeners. Any hatred they possess for each other will be temporarily hindered, where they instead enjoy each other’s company. However, with more personal hatred, the involved parties may only have their animosity for each other deepen, which will cancel out the occurring acceptance field.
