This community is for those of you who want to break out of the classical scene, and play jazz on your horns. Trade tips, experiences, or just talk about the music.
When joining, tell somehting about yourself, what you play on, and who has influenced you. You need not limit your influences to only clarinetists.
As for me, the moderator, My name is Ellis Johnson. I'm working on my 10th year of playing clarinet, and I play a ton of jazz. I am currently playing on a LeBlanc Noblet, but am moving to a Selmer Signature shortly.
I study jazz under clarinet legend Bill Smith who has been Dave Brubeck's clarinetist since the 40's.
Feel free to contact me at anytime to chat about jazz.
