The master of jazz bass clarinet in my mind is Eric Dolphy. He also plays
flute and alto sax on his albums. I don't go for his alto much, but
his flute and his bass clarinet are breathtaking. He is a little on
the avant-garde side, and that can be tough for some people to listen to.
But his technique is nothing short of unbelievable.
