MYSTERY MAN OF JAZZ - JIMMY O'BRYANT

CD / Product Number: DGF51

Enigmas in jazz and blues history, rather than being the exception, have in many cases become the prevailing rule. The case of Jimmy O'Bryant is a startling example of this. O'Bryant was an exceptional clarinet player in the Johnny Dodds mould, but has been vastly neglected by contemporary jazz historians as he was during his lifetime. Sadly this is the jazz enthusiasts' loss as his expertise is beyond dispute as this CD serves to witness!
