Mr. Clarinet is the 1953 album by The Buddy DeFranco Quartet, Originally released by Verve, the CD features DeFranco on clarinet plus Kenny Drew on piano, Art Blakey on drums, and Milt Hinton on bass. This was released by Verve Music Group on 6 August, 2002.

The clarinet never quite made the transition from the big band era to the modern age, probably because many found it hard to play the licks of bop on what ultimately is a tricky instrument to master. Thus what used to be the most popular instrument for band leaders quickly became old-fashioned, associated with a time period when people preferred to dance instead of listen.

Buddy DeFranco was virtually the only clarinetist to follow Shaw and Goodman and was determined to find a niche for the clarinet in a music that quickly became dominated by trumpets and saxophones. Mr. Clarinet, one of his first records, demonstrates why he was called the Charlie Parker of the clarinet. By looking at the hard-hitting rhythm section alone, one can detect a forward-thinking group of people who aren’t going to linger in the past. The opener is a lengthy blues tune that would have been par for the course for any saxophonist, but which sounds oddly soulful on a clarinet, DeFranco really throwing out some bluesy riffs. At other points the tempo is kicked up to a pace that would cause many inferior musicians to stumble but which DeFranco handles expertly, peeling off licks with the same nonchalance he would bring to the act tying his shoes. Drew, Blakey, and Hinton, are superb, as is to be expected. All of this is a far cry from an instrument we normally associate with bubbles and champagne instead of small group jazz. A thoroughly enjoyable session.
