the virtuoso clarinetist is good... a little cheezy but impressive. there's always the mozart with marcellus playing - with cleveland orchestra under szell. if you like something different, try giora feidman- klezmer- it's really GREAT stuff. there's also eddie daniels. he did a different version of the seasons by vivaldi- with some jazz. some purists may not like it, but fact it, the guy can play like nothing else. he has other cd.s too. there are lots!
some magazines, muncy and maybe ww/bw, have recordings as well.

good luck

My Friday Favorites:

-New Klezmer Trio (featuring Ben Goldberg)
-Regineld Kell doing the Brahms Quintet
-Marcellus doing Mozart w/ Cleveland
-Don Byron "Tuskegee Experiments"

It's nice to hear somebody kick butt with the technique,
but it's most important to seek out music you LIKE and FEEL beyond the impressivness of the virtuosity.

actually..... if you want something fun, richard stoltzman's New York Counterpoint album is really cool. some of the songs are cheeze, but some are really fun. it's really the only thing of his i like.
i also just listened to a big band cd (if you like that sort) with big's like eddie daniels, doc sevreson (spelling?) ed shaunnesy, dave brubek- it's a great c.d and eddie has some great moments. i loved it.

go eddie daniels!

The "My Tempo Accompaniment" CD series for Clarinet can help you a lot with learning the literature. Nothing like it (where you get to select the recorded tempos).

I must have 5 or 6 different versions of Mozart's K.622 and K.518 Clarinet Concertos. The first movement of both pieces simply have to be the closest one came come to perfection. And nothing brings back memories for me like
K.622's "Adagio." If there's any interest in MOZART, read Maynard Soloman's biography of the same name, published in 1995 by Harper Collins ISBN 0-06-092692-9

ARIA by Richard Soltzman may be of interest if for no other reason than people recognize the Arias from famous operas, PLUS, Carl Fischer and Stoltzman have published the arrangements from ARIA for clarinet and piano at the nice price of $24.95
ISBN # 0-8258-3196-2

ps You can't go wrong with THE BEST OF PETE FOUNTAIN
on CD. Decca Label GRD-665 I love that Guy!

HAVE FUN!

I am a little late on this thread, but please check out my web site. I have several CDs that I sell directly and more than 100 listed from Amazon.com. Lots of information (and cover art) that you won't find in the amazon.com listings.

While i admire Eddie's ability, his personality really bites. And i don't like alot of his newer stuff. It all kinda blends together. So i listen to a couple of albums when i just wanna wind down, and don't feel like getting out some of my more favorite vinyl instead.

Should try listening to Paul Desmond and his Quintet/Quartet, Jerry Mulligan and his various ensembles. Buddy Defranco in his early small combo work... and such. Mulligan and Desmond weren't clarinet players obviously, but they were still great sax players. Very nice work, and Buddy is fabulous. If you can find a recording of Stan Hasselgard (i know there are a few imported CDs from Sweden or the Netherlands), he was also a faboulous player. If he hadn't died in an automobile accident at the age of 26, he probably would have rivaled Buddy in the 40's and 50's.

If you like big band stuff, Woody Herman is often looked over, even by clarinetists. They usually only think of BG, Artie Shaw or Pete Fountain. And Shaw is often not known by youngin's either. And from Woody's band, Stan Getz, Al Cohn and Zoot Sims also became wonderful combo players. "Getz Au Go Go" is a great Bossa Nova album.

Anyway.. these are just a few names off the top of my head of my favorite sax and/or clarinet jazzers.

i just heard an interesting c.d of chamber music of eric sowash. i'd never heard of him before in my life, but there are 2 pieces for clarinet, violin, cello and piano and one duet for clarinet and violin and for 20th century music (of which i'm not a great fan) it's rather interesting music-- just for thought. also, does anyone know if there's a recording out of the bolcom clarinet concerto, or has anyone heard this or have comments on it?? thanks!
