Listmates........i notice a jerry fuller thread...he has always been one of my top 5-6  favorite clarinetists to listen to over the years...while in high school, i tried to play along with him in many of his dukes of dixieland recordings. i got a big thrill when they came to san francisco to do a 3 night engagement at earthquake mcgoons [around 1966-67]....i met jerry on one of these nights and invited him to come to a gig on the next evening..he showed up and stayed for several hours. during one of the sets, i quoted one of his recorded solos note for note,which he obviously recognized because he gave me a big smile and wagged his finger at me.... i explained to him afterwards that imitation is a form of flattery....he has had a great career and given a good deal of listening pleasure to many people........jack wiard ....  australia
