Irving Fazola: My Inspiration - his 26 finest

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Here is the only CD available spotlighting the artistry of one of the greatest of all jazz clarinettists, Irving Fazola - the best white clarinet player from New Orleans. The great clarinettist Irving Prestopnick (1912- 1949) became Fazola (from the tonic sol-far: Fah-Soh- Lah) or simply 'Faz'. With his graceful phrasing and warm, liquid tone, he could only have come from New Orleans. This huge man, with his essentially melodic style owing something to Jimmie Noone, was the last in the line of New Orleans clarinet players, making a valuable contribution within the Swing Era. 'My Inspiration' showcases his artistry with a 26-track distillation of the best of his tragically brief career –excess killed him at the age of only 36.
