Thurs. 2/24 at Noon: Today we're going to feature the music of and talk to Bill Smith, one of the greatest jazz clarinetists to ever wet a reed. As well, one of the least acknowledged for his mastery.

In my choosy pantheon of clarinet greats he easily sits along side Artie Shaw, Johnny Dodds, Pee Wee Russell, Kenny Davern, Bill Payne, John Carter, Gary Foster, Lester Young, Hal McKusick, Jimmy Noone, Frankie Teschmacher, Buddy Collette and Beth Custer. These artists can spell chalumeau backwards, forwards and inside out. I spell it: Liquid.

As a filmmaker, Stedall has worked with people from all walks of life including scientists, artists and poets.
