 Re: Less-known gems (players)

I forgot Pud Brown, who used to play at the Maison Bourbon club and the Famous Door. If I listed all the clarinetists I heard at the Famous Door, I'd be up all night typing. Anyway, for Pud, who could have stepped into the Pete Fountain slot on the Welk show (Welk really wanted him to) but chose not to, Google to--Beloved New Orleans Musician Albert Pud Brown Dies. For info on Pinky Vidacovich, try

I haven't seen Orange for a long time but I know he used to play an SML clarinet with a very old A. Lelandais mouthpiece.

Today I see a whole new generation of clarinetists from all over the world influenced by the New Orleans tradition. Marching in the Second Line for Pete Fountain's funeral was a lady from Germany with a full Oehler (not Albert) system clarinet. "You play jazz on that?" someone asked. I didn't hear the answer but I think I know what it was. New Orleans clarinet is now open to both genders. On Frenchman St. there are a few women adding their own
perspective to the ever-developing tradition--something new under the sun as far as I can tell, except for Doreen Ketchens. (I've never seen a female name listed with the likes of Rappollo, Fazola, Lewis, Bigard, Tio, Hall, Picou, and Bechet, but the times, they are a-changing.) Viva la Difference!
