Desert Island Jazz
Clint Baker (2003)

Visit Website

Clint Baker, who plays New Orleans classic and revivalist jazz, is skilled not only on cornet but on trombone, alto sax, guitar, banjo, bass, tuba, and drums! On cornet his style tends to be primitive, influenced to an extent by Bunk Johnson and Kid Thomas Valentine. Baker credits Jim Borkenhagen with teaching him how to play New Orleans style, and he was encouraged along the way by Leon Oakley and Percy Humphrey. Referring to himself modestly as "a craftsman of music," Clint Baker is proudest of his ability to teach students about traditional jazz.
