More About Pete Fountain

Gregory A. Harrison, the longtime friend and mouthpiece adjuster for Pete Fountain, has published an informative article on the late New Orleans master in The Clarinet this month.  

Included are a couple of transcriptions jazz clarinetists will want to look at (the choruses on Tiger Rag and China Boy are among the most important in Pete's career) and a lot of great information on Pete's equipment.

Dr. Harrison has long been a friend of this blog as well: I'm grateful that he has read some of my articles over the years and it was through him that I was able to get back in touch with Pete before his passing. Many thanks Greg, for your continued interest in Pete's work, and willingness to share.
