In the recent discussion about Barney as a section man with Ellington (also Oliver), nobody commented on his work as soloist on tenor. In fact he was his own man on that instrument -- listen to Oliver's Someday Sweetheart and pay attention. That short solo and a few others demonstrate my point. Lyrical playing, unlike anyone else I can think of -- Of course his real status is as a clarinetist, and rightly so -- but still . . . . . .
