Between the years of 1980 and 1981 Jazz Music lost two of its great Ellingtonian clarinet men, Barney Bigard and Russell Procope, respectively. They were both known for their New Orleans, flavored, dark woody sound most notably from within the ranks of the Duke Ellington Orchestra. In New York, on May 17th a concert was held to memorialize these great gentlemen of Jazz featuring various other clarinetists from the swing era, and most importantly, the other major clarinetist from the Ellington organization, Jimmy Hamilton. It's a swinging affair, as Jazz Memorials always are, featuring a great line of clarinetists: Haywood Henry, Johnny Mince, Norris Turney, Bob Wilber, and Jimmy Hamilton. Featured in the backing rhythm section are Tommy Flannigan on piano, Chuck Wayne on guitar, Major Holley on bass, and Oliver Jackson on drums.
