Album Notes
To truly experience a taste of New Orleans, one only needs a piping hot plate of jambalaya, some red beans and rice, and a visit to the French Quarter. Or one needs to just pick up Andy Sherwood’s debut recording, “While We Danced at the Mardi Gras.” The incomparable sound of Andy Sherwood is clear and focused. He is continuing a great legacy of jazz clarinetists that includes Pete Fountain, Benny Goodman, Buddy DeFranco, and Eddie Daniels. It is clear that Andy’s overwhelming emphasis is New Orleans Dixieland jazz in the style of Pete Fountain. Andy Sherwood is first and foremost a great clarinetist who possesses that characteristically dark, fat, soulful New Orleans Dixieland sound. This collaboration establishes a new standard for jazz clarinet performance into the coming years.

the folks at "" weren't kidding when they said i'd like this if i liked pete fountain! not to mention artie shaw and benny goodman. this gentleman does indeed play a "mean licorice stick"! the rest of the band was equally good.

Pete Fountain would be proud!
This is one extremely good Dixieland CD! Mr. Sherwood is a fine clarinetist, and is accompanied by equally fine back-up artists. This CD was a delightful discovery, and I plan to send a copy to those of my children who are also infected with the Dixieland jazz "bug". Mr. Sherwood: thank you very much!

Plays a "mean" clarinet- loved his rendition of " ust A Closer Walk with Thee"
WOW! Plays a "mean" Clarinet-lovedhis rendition of "Just A Closer Walik With Thee" plus had to buy it to hear the rest of "When The Saints Go Marching In" which was a cool interpretation!
