Enjoy the exciting and enthusiastic clarinet playing of Benny Goodman in George Gershwin’s I Got Rhythmn", then scroll down for more information!

The keys from C to B flat on a clarinet made of reinforced grenadila – African blackwood mixed with plastic – by Alistair Hanson. This model produces a better sound than clarinets made of entirely of plastic, but is not subject to cracking like clarinets made entirely of wood. Suitable for advanced students.

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 image,& B.G. quartet was awesome. I believe there should be more clarinet solos in today’s music!

  • Thank you, Stace. I am in total agreement with you. I love the sax, but it has almost completely displaced the clarinet, which I think is a great pity. There ought to be room for both.
