Thanks for the welcome, guys! I haven't spent a lot of time looking for info on the internet but that site looks interesting, I've bookmarked it for later.

As a jazz listener my limited experience is mostly 60s free jazz and 70s fusion. Barely any clarinet jazz, the only things that come to mind now are a few albums with Eric Dolphy on (bass) clarinet.

So in the long term that's the kind of direction I'd love to take my playing, but at the moment I'm totally open to early jazz. Especially as I realise that's where I'll find most of the jazz clarinet repertoire.

As to where I am now... I'm just starting to get comfortable with the register key and I've spent the last couple of days mastering a version of Reveille. I'm comfortable with a grand total of nineteen fingerings ranging from a low E♭ through to the upper middle F (shown on my fingering chart as F2). Exactly how comfortable depends on how fast I have to play them! Probably the most challenging bits I've gotten semi-okay with so far have been two versions of Can Can, in G and B♭.

Should also mention if it isn't already obvious that this is effectively my first instrument, so most of the theory is new to me too, hence looking for a book which works methodically through the fundamentals...
