Perhaps he admired what Brunis did. Like all of us clarinet players,  
including the great ones, who copy the Picou solo on High Society.  
List mates can hear Mole with The Original Memphis Five and Tin Roof  
Blues at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODn2Ssk_Edo

This cut comes from a site that has LOTS of Miff Mole and LOTS of  
Great OKOM to listen to, if you surf it.  In effect it, is a complete  
search engine for tunes on You Tube by bands etc. Great listening on  
it. Suggest you go to:  http://ckuik.com/Miff_Mole to hear Mole, or http://ckuik.com/King_Oliver_and_His_Dixie_Syncopators 
, to hear Oliver, or just surf the basic site by clicking on the names  
on the "related artists" section below the list of You Tubes. Lots of  
OKOM there.
