The Clarinet

Some Clarinets in the Clarinet Family. 

This is a photo of Benny Goodman taken in 1935. 

Benny Goodman ( Benjamin David Goodman ) was an American jazz musician, clarinet player and bandleader, born in 1909 May 8 and died in 1986 June 13.

Take note of how it is played with the left hand above the right hand as in all wind instruments.

Benny Goodman was a fantastic player. He should be remembered by all musicians. I wish I could be that good of a player.
