Clarinets A - Z

Some of these players have their own web pages, others, no longer with us, wiki entries, websites dedicated to them. However, I've decided to add myspace link for those who have them as often these pages have snippets of music, website address links, blogs, and even some tour dates.

I've also noticed that most of the modern (recent) players are doubling on sax and clarinet. I imagine that they probably came to the saxophone from the clarinet and the good thing about that is the 'press' it gives to the clarinet as an instrument. I hope to expand this section shortly and maybe add comments after certain players to give people more of an instant overview of what type of music the particular player plays - if any, of course.

A few clarinet links here :

- There are several types of clarinets in use in the jazz world. The two most common are the Boehm and the Albert. I won't be going into these, but you can get more information on their differences via the Wiki link (above), or click here for a nice web-page dedicated to the Albert system.
