”That jazz” is referring to a miracle in music that happened in the beginning of 1900s when people from a big variation of ethnical and cultural background inspired each other to play in a new fashion. Luckily all this coincided with the development of new inventions like the phonograph recordings, photography and film so that it became in part documented and still can be enjoyed today. In my early teens I happened to be exposed to ”that jazz” and it struck a string deep within me that has kept vibrating ever since.

A couple of years ago I spent some vacations in Los Angeles for the first time. My brother-in-law who is a film music composer invited us to stay at his house in Hollywood and to visit the famous, legendary film studios. But in between visits we, my daughter and I, found that it was a very good place to look for second hand records. So I brought some back to Sweden, where you also find records but not so many and probably not this one. I have great use for clarinet records as a source of inspiration so if I see one with just that instrument in the front I buy it.
Clarinet player Jerry Fuller, pianist Bob Florence and vibraphonist Gene Estes may not appear in the who’s who in jazz, and they may not be at the same level as Benny Goodman, Teddy Wilson and Lionel Hampton, but it doesn’t matter much when I put on their record at apéritif time and just enjoy their swing and the sincerity in their playing. It’s a record full of harmony and spirit, one that simply puts you in a good mood.
Fellow clarinet player Matty Matlock wrote the appreciative liner notes. The tune is by Hoagy Carmichael and like everything else on the LP they treat it gentle.
