The Allan Vache Sextette: Swing & Other Things
For lovers of the clarinet a new record by Allan Vache is a jazz event. Allan is a unique player. He is absolutely fearless as an improvisor. He is one of the very few clarinetists who can play to the top of the range – high “C? and even a “D? — without piercing the listener’s ears. His middle and low registers reveal a lush tone that lends his playing great warmth. He makes a sport out of improvisation. Allan’s playing is as inventive — and exciting — as any clarinetist on the scene, today. — Rick Fay, musician and columnist for The Mississippi Rag
