Emma Johnson Clarinet Goes to Town - A Night of Swing


When clarinettist Emma Johnson won BBC Young Musician of the Year the musical world discovered an artist of unique charm, skill and charisma.   Widely regarded as Britain's favourite clarinettist, Johnson is still one of the most popular figures on the concert scene with an unparalleled ability to speak straight to an audience's heart.

In Clarinet Goes to Town Emma Johnson traces the roots of traditional American jazz whilst paying tribute to some of the greatest clarinettists of all time - Sidney Bechet, Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw - with the help of John Lenehan (piano) and Paul Clarvis (percussion).
