The Music of Don Byron : Super-eclectic clarinetist and bandleader Byron has recorded tributes to, among others, klezmer cut-up Mickey Katz, novelty composer Raymond Scott, seminal jazz tenor saxophonist Lester Young, and, most recently, Motown’s Jr. Walker and the All Stars. From swing to avant-garde to funk to classical, he engages it all with surprising results. This fall he returns to his alma mater, NEC, for a week of seminars and workshops, culminating with a concert of his kaleidoscopic music.
