Kalinichta folks!
My name is Danny and I'm a 50 yr. old New Yorker who recently started playing again. Since mom is a Sephardic greek jew, at my Bar Mitzvah (and my brother's) we had the Michel and Pappas Orchestra with Nickos Stamis (sp?) at clarinet. All my friends said it was the best Bar Mitvah they've been to because of the music even though we were hippies. Nickos put on a show bendind and dancing on the tables! Greek clarinet music has always been in my soul and when I was 10 my parents sent me for lessons and bought me a Thibouville Freres B Flat student clarinet which I'm still playing. There is one on sale right now on ebay (not mine). I've surprised myself with my ability after all these years not playing. I've probably played 20 times in the last 35 years.
I'm thinking about a new or vintage higher end clarinet. It seems the consensus is to go for an 'A'.
Any suggestions on new or vintage? Brands? Mouthpiece?
By the way, Nickos appears on one of my favorite albums... "Mr. Greek Clarinet" (George Mirros) sp?
Has anyone ever heard it?
Yiassou and thanks for any help........
Dan
