I think the habit of trying to understand why things are played as they
are in these sorts of circumstances is the best way to decide whether we
can justifiably change them.

The argument

> --Benny didn't.

...(supposing he hadn't, of course) wouldn't necessarily make someone
playing with vibrato, wrong.

You yourself produce a more detailed argument when you mention that the
later passage is written swung.

In fact, there are lots of things that Goodman does on that recording
that I don't do when I play the concerto.

But not that one.
