Then 20 year old clarinetist Garvin Bushell was an extremely versatile jazzman with a recording career extending from 1920 until 1982.  You would be hard pressed to find another musician who recorded as a member of Mamie Smith's Original Jazz Hounds in the early 1920s and who went on to multiple recording sessions with Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Eric Dolphy in the 1960s.  He first came to my attention on the 1950s LPs by Wilbur De Paris' New New Orleans Jazz Band.

Though never a major name in jazz, Bushell had a lengthy career from the music's early era, to the avant garde of the 1960s. 

Bushell played both jazz and classical music on clarinet, alto clarinet, oboe, english horn, flute, saxophone, bassoon, and contrabassoon.

He was best known as a jazz sideman with people such as Perry Bradford, and performed and/or recorded with many of jazz's great names, such as Fletcher Henderson, Bunk Johnson, Fats Waller, Cab Calloway, Eric Dolphy, Gil Evans, and John Coltrane.

Terrific and Scarce Early Hot Jazz 78 in EXCELLENT E+/E Condition.
