I've always loved Barney Bigard's clarinet solo on Tea For Two with the
Louis Armstrong band. Circa 1944 in concert.
As far as Goodman is concerned, his August 29, 1945 recording of Tiger Rag
has always been one of my favorites. I especially enjoy his low register
work plus the outstanding Slam Steward bowed bass solo on that selection.
When I was Peanuts Hucko's bass player, I don't think I every heard him play
Stealin' Apples but wish he had.
I do recall his playing 194 choruses of Runnin' Wild virtually every night,
along with my brused and bloody chops after the 100th chorus. My least
favorite quote from Peanuts: "Take it Man" - after about 160 choruses (or
so it seemed.). I wanted to take it and hit him with it. Yet, many years
later, guess those were the good old days that everyone talks about.
