AllMusic Review by

Falling in Love With Benny Goodman is part of RCA's mid-line Falling in Love With series, which focuses on romantic highlights from classic big-band, swing, and jazz artists. There aren't any risky choices on Goodman's volume, but that's fine, since each of the title's 16 cuts -- including "Body and Soul," "The Man I Love," "Moonglow," "In a Sentimental Mood," "These Foolish Things Remind Me of You," and "The Glory of Love" -- sustains a mellow, romantic mood. This record may not really be necessary, but for anyone looking for lovely, romantic music from Goodman, it's not a bad choice at all.
