Jazz: Artie Shaw

Arthur Jacob Arshawsky, the great clarinetist, composer, arranger and bandleader, died in December. This site for an NPR show includes sound clips of a 2002 interview, music samples, photos, and links. <>

And the Shaw page from Ken Burn's jazz extravaganza isn't that bad given the director's apparent disrespect for white jazz musicians.

The epitaph Shaw wrote for Who's Who in America reads:
"He did the best he could with the material at hand."
