"I wasn’t interested in jazz at all. You know, the jazz clarinetists that I had heard, like George Lewis and others, I appreciated their tones and I respected them, but that was not my concept of tone at all. Their styles at the time were against what I was studying, trying to get a perfect classical clarinet tone." from Ben Redwine's interview with Doreen Ketchens

Doreen Ketchens, busking ("House of the Rising Sun") or playing with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra ("Just a Closer Walk With Thee"), is A Brilliant Jazz Clarinetist From New Orleans

I'd seen video of her busking before, but she absolutely slays with the Philharmonic. She is so far out of their league it's embarrassing. Incredible playing.
