 Re: Less-known gems (players)

Sebastian Manz is a fine classical player on the Oehler system clarinet. Manz (and Wenzel Fuchs and Andreas Ottensamer, to say nothing of Sabine Meyer) is energetically showing that the Oehler, among gifted classical players, is not on the endangered species yet and may never be! In 2011, Dmitry Rasul Kareyev, in the Suisse Romande Orchestra, switched from Boehm clarinet to a Wurlitzer Oehler system and has been playing it ever since.

But so far the thread has been mostly about players in the New Orleans Jazz tradition and perhaps its swing extensions, so we can still add a few names there. Darnell Howard used to turn up in a lot of the same places as Albert Nichols, and Nichols' lines are maybe easier to follow. Another New Orleans player, Edmond Hall, is now represented in many recordings starting to turn up on YouTube; for example, the complete LPs, Rumpus on Rampart Street, Pete Fleur, and Dixieland Man.

Omer Simeon's Clarinet a la Creole is also up at

Johnny Mince was stylistically more of a swing player but, like Irving Fazola and Matty Matlock, he also played with the Bobcats and could easily cross the line. Mince could swing hard and construct very coherent solos that were spot on to the chord progressions and melodic curve of the tune. Always thought he was underrated. Listen to him with Billy Butterfield on
