Yesterday there was an interesting project at the Osaka Jazz Listening Club.

The theme was “Brother and sister competitions in the jazz world”.

Isao Takemura(竹村功氏),who is an older than me, introduced Herbie Hall who was younger brother of Edmond Hall.

Edmond Hall is one of the best clarinet players in jazz history.

Their father, also Edward, played the clarinet in the Onward Brass Band.

The Hall brothers, Robert, Edmond, and Herbert, all became clarinetist.

UnfortunatelyI there are few materials as well about Herbie Hall.

Because his older brother was too very great clarinetist.

Fortunately we can listen to his performance on YouTube.

I will reprint Mr. Takemura’s the selection of music.

I am happy to learn from some veteran jazz fans a lot of things.
