The mouthpiece, ligature, reed and barrel of a B flat clarinet made of the finest African blackwood (Grenadilla). The mouthpiece is made of plastic and the ligature of leather with a gold screw. The barrel is made of African blackwood. The clarinet is a step-up instrument made by Alistair Hanson and has a clear, rich tone throughout its entire range. The clarinet parts are resting on a base of white ash.The picture is presented in a mirrored frame, but is available unframed upon request.
Enjoy the superb clarinet playing of Kenny Davern, whose mastery of the altissimo register takes my breath away, in “Wrap Up Your Troubles In Dreams”! The pianist’s name is Derek Smith. However, he is heard, but not seen in this fantastic clip. I have already watched it four times! Enjoy!

My life is divided between teaching Music and Photography. The instruments I play are organ, piano, clarinet and saxophone. I taught German and Spanish before my retirement, but since I got my digital camera no longer have time for them!

    Great stuff!
    Send this to JAZZED UP ART. I think you’ll love the Group!

  • Thank you, Dandy. I was unaware of its existence. I love to play jazz on my clarinet, as well as classical music. Funnily enough, I play more classical stuff on my sax than jazz. Typical of me! I will see about joining this group today. I hope that you and Kelly are both well and that you have a good week ahead. Hugs, Kathryn
