 Re: John Denman's clarinet

Some further internet digging eventually yielded a Facebook page that unlocked this mystery:

https://www.facebook.com/John-Denman-1933-2001-211771595539318

There, you can find some great photos of Denman's Bb (attached). It was restored by Stephen Butler, who was kind enough to confirm that the instrument was made by Albert, but that the tuning barrel and the Bb mechanism were made by the late Edward (Ted) Planas. A unique instrument; I hope it's being played.

In the course of this investigation, I've been able to use eBay to recover a pile of Denman recordings that are otherwise no longer available. It seems no-one plays in that traditional ultra-English way now (at least, not in the UK), but Denman's playing had great character, and it's been a pleasure to rediscover him.
