Clem Raymond with Dick Oxtot – The Lost Clarinet
Delmark DE 208
Clarinetist Clem Raymond moved to Claifornia from New Orleans in 1916. He was discovered by Dick Oxtot in the Bay Area and recorded in 1958 in a pianoless full-band as well as quartet and trio formats. This is a fascinating and historic album which will appeal to anyone who likes Johnny Dodds or George Lewis. P.T. Stanton, Bob Mielke and others provide mellow support.
