Clarinet Marmalade - A celebration of 24 great vintage jazz clarinettists 1918-1962

Clarinet Marmalade - A celebration of 24 great vintage jazz clarinettists 1918-1962
CD / Product Number: RTR4328

Retrospective offers a cavalcade of, arguably, the 24 greatest vintage jazz clarinettists from the first 45 years of recorded jazz history. From Larry Shields and the Original Dixieland Jazz Band in 1918 through to the peerless George Lewis in Burgundy Street Blues in 1962, a representative performance from each clarinet master has been carefully selected. Seldom could a jazz history lesson pass by so enjoyably as you sample the widely varying playing styles of such influential virtuosi as Benny Goodman, Sidney Bechet, Artie Shaw, Johnny Dodds and so many others. The musical moods could hardly be more contrasted, from the smooth velvet of Artie Shaw’s September Song to the frankly incredible Man With A Horn Goes Berserk from the redoubtable Buster Bailey. So many treats: just listen for instance to the gorgeous tone of Irving Fazola on My Inspiration. The Union Jack is flown by three distinctive English instrumentalists: Sid Phillips (I Got Rhythm), Monty Sunshine (Wild Cat Blues) and Acker Bilk (Creole Jazz).
