David B.-what are you talking about?

Thinking about Richard Stoltzman has helped me. I used to not like his tone, his vibrato, his lite jazz, etc. Then I heard the Corigliano and shut up. He's got a totaly personal sound - this is a big deal. I think it's one of the most important things to confront: "trying to sound like YOU." So here is an example for all of us, regardless of preferances. I think media has conditioned a need for artificial purity in society. The need to have ultra clear skin, unaturaly thin bodies, simple/plain McDonalds, all of these encourage us to create things that are annonymous, pure, defined, etc. Smooth jazz like Kenny G or Dave Koz follows this trend. Now, put Kenny G next to Jelly Roll Morton and you see how raw things can be. I think we should appreciate the contrary - we should go for the raw and personal in our music. This means sounding like YOU sound and listening to YOURSELF more than anybody else. To me, Eddie Daniels is too pure and clean, so is Benny Goodman (most of the time), but Stoltzman says to heck with it, I gotta be me. With this attitude he touches people with his music - more than just a bunch of clarinetists - but folks all over the world. People seem, to me, to be concerned these days with a dark sound, since I gave this up, I've been a much happier clarinetist. happier, how's that for a SAT word!
