  Goodman:  “You've all heard Star Dust played by the trio, the quartet, and the band.  The other night while the new group in the band, the sextet, were jamming, Charlie Christian, our new guitar player, fell out in a chorus of Star Dust that no one ever heard before—nearly broke up the session.  So, tonight we thought you'd like to hear this:  the sextet playing Star Dust.”
