Regarding Bob Helms - There have been many comments on his recording legacy
but how about his compositions!
My favorite is "Riverside Shake."
I got to play with Helms a couple of times about 20 years ago while I was in
the old Black Diamond Jazz Band. Bob played a couple of gigs with us and he
sounded great! I think in recent years he may have become a bit feeble and
his playing suffered somewhat but that's no reflection on his abilities and
contributions as a clarinetist and composer.
