      According to the late George T. Simon,Glenn Miller was a member of that band.Senter
      recorded for OKeh.If there is a musical question which begs to be asked,it would be
      "Was Boyd Senter serious or wasn't he?"Was Senter a clarinetist in the manner of
      the early New Orleans players like Larry Shields?

      I suspect a pool of players all playing a similar passionate blues-
      based style of clarinet, of whom Dodds was the most famous exponent.

      In a recorded interview (and I am quoting from memory) Baby Dodds
      described the downtown players as playing the blues in a French or
      Spanish style whereas, he says, the uptown players had just one way
      of playing the blues: "Negro style." I assume that by French or
      Spanish style he might mean something like the way in which Picou
      plays the tune he called "Coon Blues" which can be heard on CD8 of
      the Rounder set of the Morton Library of Congress recordings.

      In another interview, transcribed in The End of the Beginning, a book
      edited by Barry Martyn, and published by Jazzology Press, Emile
      Barnes mentions George & Achile Bacquet as clarinettists he admired,
      and reserves especial praise for Big Eye Louis Nelson. He makes no
      mention of Dodds.

      Boyd Senter was a white hokum clarinettist, amusing to listen to for
      about ten minutes. I don't know the source of Max Harrison's claim,
      but isn't there a Dodds session (San? Lizzie?) where, possibly
      fulfilling a brief dictated by the record company, he attempts a sort
      of hokum style at variance with the usual depth & profundity of his
      playing?

        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
