Frank Griffith - Master of the Reeds.

On my recent London jaunt I was impressed with the clarinet (and tenor) playing of Frank Griffith and, after receiving a friendly thank you email from him, I visited his website which is well worth checking out featuring as it does, a superb Body and Soul as well as a track from Tina May's album Divas with the Frank Griffith Big Band. It's the old Peggy Lee/Benny Goodman classic Why Don't You Do Right? - Take it from me they certainly do do it right!
Check it out here. (Photo from Frank Griffith's website.)
