Can't recall if I have heard this version but Brian Carrick did a recording
of it for the Jazz Crusade label which should be readily available here via
the Ken Colyer Trust or listmate, Jerry Brown. Brian, by the way, plays a
clarinet given to him by George Lewis (and probably still held together by
the elastic bands supplied by yours truly !!)

Details below.

        Suffolk, England.

> I've been trying to transcribe the clarinet part to St Phillip St
Breakdown. The only copy I have is on American Music's George Lewis Trios
and Bands CD. I can't match the key at all (perhaps its played on a HP
clarinet?)--does anyone know what key this piece is in (concert pitch)and
can anyone recommend any other recordings of this piece of music.
> thanks for your help
