Love Benny Goodman's clarinet playing.

@ChipmunkErnie Begin The Beguine... Stardust. Shaw had a more robust, richer tone.
ChipmunkErnie70-79, M
@SW-User If ypou say so. I know both the tunes you mention, but can't for the life of me remember what Shaw sounded like playing them. "Stardust" I remember mostly from the Benny Goodman version; same with "Begin the Beguinne".

@ChipmunkErnie Don't get me wrong. I love Benny Goodman. In fact, The Benny Goodman Story is my favorite Big Band movie biopic.

All of the above it has more to do with the artist then the instrument :-)

I am a bit biased, i play trombone!
samueltyler280-89, M
@CountScrofula cool, what do you enjoy playing? My big band is my favorite, although I used to enjoy my smaller ensemble jazz band, I was among the few who would improvise.
CountScrofula41-45, M
@samueltyler2 I'd say that when I played more seriously I always enjoyed big band the most and had some great times playing in big bands. Currently I play with a small folk band where I switch between that and banjo. The music is a little less conventional but it's very freeing to just play as I wish.

I play the bass, so it's my obvious choice.

It sets the tone, the tempo, the rhythm, and the feeling for every song.
i voted "other", the voice/vocals
