Everybody will give you this reply, but I haven't seen any of
them yet, so I'll beat them to the punch. Eddie Daniels is an
excellent tenor sax player -- professional level -- in addition
to being one of the finest classical and jazz clarinetists around.
If I'm not mistaken, tenor sax was his first instrument and he
picked up the clarinet later. Look at him now! I must say, his
recording of the Brahms Quintet is quite wonderful.
