Flexible clear rubber clarinets? Fantastic!

But seriously, this guy is just phenominal.  I've paid good coin to watch guys in tuxes who couldn't blow half as well as this cat.
Just amazing.

Take a look at that squirrel cheek "saxophone embouchure", too.  It wouldn't work for me, but I hope embouchure purists worldwide are taking note of it. 
Love it!

Neato!  I find that many street musicians are better, or at least more passionate their their 'professional' counterparts.

I can't tell what brand that thing is.  Could be one of those super rare Buffets...  But those are pretty expensive and rare...

This guy is so good that I suspect it's a $79.99 jobbie from a place I can't pronounce.
He could play a piece of PVC better than I could play an Opus...

That's Kaliq Woods.  A great jazz player making sure the clarinet gets some street cred. Yup, the man is an extraordinary clarinetist!

That's youtube's anti-shake at work. 
The Clarinet Pages is where we answer the question: "Am I not a Clarinet and a Woodwind?"
