Acerca de Barney Bigard
One of the premier clarinet players in the history of jazz, Barney Bigard remains immortal thanks to his timeless tune "Mood Indigo." Born in New Orleans, he studied with the masters before moving on to play with King Oliver and Jelly Roll Morton in the 1920s. Also a tenor saxophonist, he came to prominence on clarinet while working with Duke Ellington from '27 to '42. His mellow tone, graceful finger work and smooth sustain graced countless recordings during the peak of the Swing craze, including some of his own compositions. Later, he joined the Louis Armstrong All Stars, touring worldwide from '47 to '55 (though the earlier Swing era was his most creative period). He appeared in several films, wrote the book With Louis and the Duke, and ultimately must be given accolades for his contributions to jazz in its nascent period.
