Ed Joffe did a great interview with Eddie on his Youtube channel

And @Clarineat did a great interview on his podcast. Wonderful to see Eddie in all this content. You can tell how much he loves music and the clarinet.

And here’s Eddie with the surprise clarinet solo that really made him famous, with the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra.

The story behind it:

I really should try to get in touch with him. @Klarnax sold me a mouthpiece Eddie worked on probably 20 years ago. It’s not really a jazz piece, but can easily be pushed. I should see if he remembers anything about it. It’s been played enough I’ll probably need to replace it soon.
