I cannot stop listening to Artie Shaw, his music is so amazing. I am an elderly widow, Artie Shaw music makes me feel like a romantic teenager. I have read The trouble with Cinderalla, what an amazing individual he was.

Artie Shaw was a very dedicated and interesting person. He sounded like a great person. I myself play the clarinet, but I found out that clarinets don't relly play in jazz bands anymore. I am currently teaching myself how to play jazz and how to improvise. The "King of Carinet" should be remembered in all of our hearts...

For Artie...

You were in a
league of your own.


WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

As a collector of jazz records since the age of seven (now 40) i have always held Artie Shaw in high esteem.
Now as a clarinetist i try to play along with the records with some success but not alot i wish i had been born earlier so that i could've actually seen him and also be able to get transcriptions of his solos to see how he played a greatly missed musician and author

Artie Shaw was my all time favorite clarinet player. I just loved the way he played his tone his style his ability to make a big band swing like there was no tomorrow. When history is written over and over again about clarinet expertise ARTIE SHAW remains to the very top. I have heard too too too much about BENNY GOODMAN. Benny Goodman was over rated. In comparison there is a comparison. Artie Shaw was the much more accomplished jazz musician. But in all sincerity Artie had that ability to play the greatest I mean the greatest clarinet in the universe. Ask Buddy De Franco ask any one who adored him. Artie Shaw was the beginng and end of clarinet. Artie we love you today just like we loved you way back then. Simply the most tremendous clarinet player in the Universe. Love you and miss you Artie Shaw.

Without ARTIE Shaw I would have never played the clarinet. And by not playing the clarinet my life would be very empty. He was an inspiration to our generation.God Bless YOU ARTIE. Bob MacLeod St.JOhn's Newfoundland
