I was sharing unpopular opinions about jazz before it was cool…
I’ll see your Keith Jarrett and raise you Ted Lewis, whose singing I absolutely and unironically enjoy very much. King Oliver’s Dixie Syncopators is even more “dope” than his Creole Jazz Band. The clarinet never needed a comeback, because it never went away, but wait until bands go back to brass basses instead of string ones.
- Fletcher Henderson’s band sounded amazing before Louis Armstrong joined it.
- Bix Beiderbecke played beautifully but the best part of his records was Don Murray.
- Buster Bailey was one of the greatest jazz clarinetists to ever grace this planet.
