CD Reviews

Great clainet and guitar combo
07/08/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ken Davern is one of the purest clarinet players I've heard since Benny Goodman. He is great! Also, it sounds like Howard Alden on the 7 string guitar on the preview. If it is, you are in for a real treat with this C.D. They were at the Jazz Festival in Elkhart, Indiana the last weekend of June. They were simply marvelous. If you like this type of jazz, you will love them."
