Product Details


Even though he 'officially' retired in 1953, Artie Shaw still loves to talk about the music that has made him a legend for half a century. His liquid clarinet sound and phrasing, his contemporary improvisational skills and his ability to play big band and small band jazz as well as 'legit' horn increased his stature in the music world. James Christensen chooses DANCING IN THE DARK, BEGIN THE BEGUINE, STAR DUST and FRENESI to complete this salute to an inspirational musician. (duration 6:10)

Begin the Beguine (from "Jubilee") Cole Porter (composer)
