Cabaret Scenes

 

"In the tradition of Louis Armstrong, Bunny Berigan and Chet Baker...singing was a major part of the act...a distinct buttery voice...the clarinet was as smooth 800-thread set of linens...he scaled his clarinet with mellow lows and deft sweet highs as if just breathing."

 

- Melody Breyer-Greil
