C Jam Blues – Barney Bigard 1968
Barney Bigard was one of these wonderful New Orleans styled clarinet players who became famous in the twenties. He, together with Omer Simeon, Albert Nicholas, Jimmy Noone, Darnell Howard and of course Sidney Bechet set the pattern. Their talents together with playing the Albert sytem clarinets created an unique style.
Here we hear and see Barney in Chicago with a trio lead by pianist Art Hodes with Rails Wilson on bass and Bob Cousins on drums.
