Mark Walton proves in this recording what a fine clarinetist he was in this, Sid Phillips’ chart. Both the musician and Sid are so underrated. Sid, a British musician, played in the United States on radio and freelance in clubs in the 1930s. He served in the Royal Air Force during World War II, then put together his own quartet in 1946 and wrote several pieces for the BBC Symphony Orchestra. He led a Dixieland jazz band of his own formation from 1949. Enjoy.
