6615RE: [RedHotJazz] Keep The Spoon Out Of Your Cup was Button Up Your Overquote
- Feb 5, 2009Hello Gilbert
Always nice to hear from you especially as you were there whereas we only
have the records and the books.
What do you make of Uptown clarinet style ? Did it still exist -- assuming
it ever did exist -- in your time in N.O. and if so what players ?
You are spot on about N.O. clarinet players and blues and this could be
extended to N.O. players generally.
I know we discussed the wonderful Ray Burke before and your report of him
listening to PWR. I had assumed he admired PWR but that is apparently not
the case ?
Yes, technique -- proper technique -- is stressed as paramount in accounts
of early N.O. 'Illegitimate' tone was not prized maybe until Oliver whose
use of mutes seems to have been widely admired. And maybe here we have the
reason why Dodds left about no legacy in N.O.
