New York Gypsy All-Stars - Ismail Lumanovski (Balkan/Jazz/Funk)
« on: January 20, 2018, 03:18:56 PM »
I had the huge pleasure to hear the NY Gypsy All-Stars play live a number of times in the last few years, and also saw them back Dimitris Basis (famous Greek vocalist).

Made up of some of New York's finest jazz/world session musicians, the New York Gypsy All-Stars are a phenomenal modern jazz group that fuse elements of Balkan, Greek, Turkish, Indian, and Electronic music with Jazz, creating a beautiful new sound.

Given that this is a predominantly clarinet site, I urge everyone to listen to the incredible Ismail Lumanovski. Met him in NY, and he is a such a humble and down to earth guy. Amazing tone and virtuosic technique.

Creds also to fellow Greek Panagiotis Andreou on bass who is an absolute beast.

Cool! A bohem with low Eb. I had one of these for a few years.

Yeah, I thought so for a minute; then I looked at the placement. It's a "Low F correction key", an idea borrowed from high end German clarinet makers to correct for the tendency of the low E and F to be a little flat in order to voice the B and C in tune. But on the German clarinets it's usually a thumb key. I would guess that this placement is probably easier to use.

Wha? You're wiser than me for sure. Never heard of this, just looks like a low Eb. Are you talking about all the alternative thumb key configurations that correct for the octave/Bb key? My bass clarinet has a version of that (i.e. 2 thumb keys, one for Bb, the other for an octave key).


But nonetheless, that's a boehm clarinet surely.

Wisdom has nothing to do with it. With all the variations I saw when I switched to German system, and having a curious mind by nature, I started studying all the different configurations, and what they do.

Yes, that's a Boehm clarinet. It's a Tosca, one of Buffet's newer high-end models.

No, it's not an alternative register key. You won't notice, because over the years you've learned to correct for it with your embouchure without needing to think about it, but one of the perennial problems for clarinet makers is the tendency of the twellth to be too wide near the end of the bore. The usual preference is to make the clarion register play in tune, which makes the low E and F a little flat. The correction key opens a small vent either on, or in the case of the Tosca, right next to, the bell to raise the pitch of those notes slightly.

Watching Ismail has been interesting. He started out playing classical music on  a Bb Boehm. Then in New York he started playing Gypsy/folk music. I first saw him with the Secret Trio and he got a really good Turkish sound out of that same instrument. Later you saw him with a Boehm G - at least that's what it appears to be, and in his recent videos you see him playing an Albert.

Natural progression?  ;)

This showed up on ebay - this is the German thumb key version of that low E/F correction vent.
