Re: clarinetists

There were, and are, so many excellent clarinetists in the jazz world. Some to explore are Albert Nicholas, Barney Bigard (his "Body and Sould" with Louis is a landmark piece),Tommy Reynolds, Herbie Field,Sol Yaged,Buddy DeFranco, Dr. Michael ?, Jack Maheu, Nick Palumbo. These are just a few. If you research New Orleans and Chicago style jazz, you'll find many more.
