The sixteen selections on this CD all feature the clarinet of Rick Bogart in a Trio or Quartet setting, an ideal format to showcase his mastery of an instrument that has in recent years lost much of its former popularity. For this reason alone, this album will sound fresh to listeners today when so many contemporary jazz recordings mostly feature the tenor saxophone or the trumpet.
Rick is originally from New Orleans, a city that has produced some of the greatest names in jazz, but in no way can be typecast as playing in a Dixieland or New Orleans tradition. He has his own style, producing a beautiful warm, full clarinet sound especially in the lower register, reminding us that this is truly a woodwind instrument. He also has that rare gift of playing the melody of a song in a definitive way which, according to the late great cornetist, Bobby Hackett, is one of the hardest things to do.
