This book comes from the private collection of the legendary jazz clarinetist and Jazz Hall of Fame inductee, Kenny Davern. While Kenny was best known as a jazz musician who worked with everyone from Jack Teagarden to Steve Lacy, he attributes David Weber, principal solo clarinetist with the New York City Ballet Orchestra as his most influential teacher. He and I would listen to mostly classical music when we visited and discussed the differences in interpretations by various conductors. Kenny's knowledge of classical music was encyclopaedic, particularly of the work of conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler whose works lined the walls of his music room.
