All Hail Doreen Ketchens. She is amazing. A great musician, clarinetist, vocalist. Stunning.

Correction 12.11.14:  My earlier  post below revealed — I am embarrassed to say — my ignorance of the work of much admired, travelled, and honored  jazz clarinetist Doreen Ketchens.  I just had not heard of her.

But I have now and will be a permanent fan.


All I know is that her name might be Doreen and that she is a street musician in  NOLA.

Now I’m waiting for someone to tell me that she really is a famous performer who I simply don’t recognize.
