 Bass Clarinet Day on NPR

Today's (03-June-2004) edition of NPR's news program "Morning Edition" used three different music "buttons" that prominently featured bass clarinet. (Buttons are the music interludes between stories.) The attached link will take you to a page where you can here the segments.

The first you will encounter is the cut "Greensleeves" from Roy Haynes CD "Fountain of Youth." Marcus Strickland plays bass clarinet. (Actually, I'm not sure if that cut is really the "Greensleeves" track, as I located a sample of it on another site and they sound nothing alike.)

The CD that features bass clarinet more prominently is "The Body Acoustic," from which you'll find two samples on the NPR site, "N. Y. Cool" and "Acoustic Metal." Bob Mintzer plays bass clarinet.

Another, non-bass clarinet track that I found interesting was "Be My Noir" by The Birdmen. It is a Bach piece played on percussion. (What is the name of that piece?)

Hello Don, it's actually by Purcell. It's the rondo from The Moor's Revenge. Britten used it as the theme for The Young Person's Guide.
