Nice transcription! Aside from Sidney Bechet and Artie Shaw, I don't listen to much jazz clarinet (and even with those dudes, I'm still a greenhorn). But I dug Benny's playing--beautiful tone and nice swing feel!

One thing I found interesting with his solo was the lack of chromaticism, especially in neighbor-notes and enclosures. As a bebop player, for example, I would have played an F# on the upbeat of beat 2 at m. 33. (I initially thought the written F natural was a mistake; after listening 3 times, though, I think it's correct.) Moreover, on the upbeat of beat 1 in m. 34 and 35, I'd again play F#s but F naturals later in the bar (I'd also play a D# over the G7 chord--that choice, however, is just an idiosyncrasy of bebop playing). With the Bb-G-A enclosures at m. 38 and 39, I'd play G#s, which are almost ingrained in my muscle memory for that type of line.

Anywho, I tried playing the opening phrases my way and BG's way. Because my ears aren't accustomed to the swing style of playing, I felt his note choices gave the impression of skating the changes (which is something I've often heard listening to Goodman's solos).
