I once heard a clarinet solo version of "Stardust" on a PBS radio program, of course while I was in the car. I missed the beginning when they would have announced the player. And after the song finished the announcer did not repeat who the soloist was. I always wondered if it might be Buddy De Franco. Anyone out there familiar with an item of this nature in his catalog of recordings?

Joseph C Moore

I would guess that the clarinet player on Stardust was Benny Goodman who was a great musician. Buddy DeFranco was my favorite. I played in a combo in San Diego in the late 50's and late in the evening Buddy would occasionally come in and sit in on the last set and blow everyone away. After the gig he would usually cajoll some of us to go to a late night club in La Jolla and jam.
