      Always nice to hear from Albert about Bix.

      Now Bix is the perfect example of a player with impeccable taste and
      profound architectonic sense.

      Also perfectly fulfilling Harrison's measure as, arguably, the most original
      jazz musician ever. Other candidates ?

      Also his music has an irresistible flow. That is not exactly the same as
      swing but then Bach flows but does not swing.

      But Bix raises perhaps another 'measure of final achievement ' -- legacy.

      I know we have been here before but Bix's legacy was somewhat short-lived
      and mostly to spawn imitation. Louis, for example, spawned imitation but
      also the whole further history of jazz.

      Can Dodds' legacy be limited to, possibly, Willie Joseph and, definitely,
      the ersatz emoting of white revival clarinettists worldwide ?

      It could be argued that, through his admitted influence on Goodman, his
      legacy eventually pervaded the entire swing era and entered standard
      clarinet style.

      Dodds' good taste I think we have agreed and I certainly find a coherent
      form in his best work. It is also possible to argue that such was his
      originality that the spurious existence of a whole pre-Dodds school of
      clarinet playing was predicated upon it.

      Dave

        Hello Mr. Litwak. Could I get out of you the mp3 featuring "Veseliy Kazak" played by N. Brandwein? I'm just discovering the connection between Jazz and Klezmer, through the Woody Allen's clarinet. Thank you very much. Marco Levi
