 Re: Mouthpiece for large-bore clarinet?

Wow, thank you Seabreeze and Dubrosa22! I contacted the two mouthpiece providers and will look at the pieces recommended. Very interesting!

I mentioned to the providers that my vocal style and instrumental voicing have a common thread of being kind of earthy and visceral, and with lilting qualities inspired by Billie Holiday and Nina Simone. The clarinet already has so much of the sound I wanted, if I can enhance it further, that will be something.

I recently got a R&C AG soprano sax that has the older (not that "pure" Yani sound), sandy jazz sound (of course you can get a wide variety of sounds from it, so maybe I should say "enables" instead of "has") that is so perfect for my niche and style. Listeners are really responding favorably, so it's quite gratifying. It's a gas to feel transported back to another time.

Funny side note: I think I found the classical recording of Benny Goodman allegedly playing a Series 9, and, as others have said, it did not sound like his brightest idea, tone-wise OR articulation-wise. At least he wasn't in a classical ensemble.
