​About This Music:

T​his is ​a LIVE recording of my duo with New Orleans-piano master, David Torkanowsky​. The ​songs are ​a mix of originals ​and standards​ that try torepresent the state of the clarinet and piano traditions that continue to evolve in the Crescent City. ​

The recorded concert was part of the 2020 Luthjen's Live Music series hosted by Marigny Recording Studios, once home to an incarnation of the historic Luthjen's Dance Hall.

This video ​​from a promotion of the concert at the WWOZ radio station studios features, Sid's Biz, one of the songs performed for the recording.
