Yamaha YSS-475 II soprano
I think he’s a great musician.
I know that some clarinetists, especially trad jazz players, feel that Albert system clarinets have a better tone for that style of music than Boehm system clarinets. One of the best players in that tradition, Ed Hall, played Albert system. Perhaps Woody feels the same way.is he still insisting to handicap himself further by using albert system clarinets?
After watching a bunch of videos of him playing, his style grew on me. He doesn’t appear to need sheet music and has internalized all the melodies. I think in the context of the music he is playing, his clarinet adds something.Just listened to that Woody Allen clip you posted (well, I should say I listened to the first minute or two, which was all I could take). A great musician?? You're joking, of course (I hope).
