Just caught this on NBC-TV.  I am not familiar with this man’s music but some of you may know if he made 78’s.  NBC said he played with Alan Greenspan & Stan Getz.

The following is from his obit at...


Mr. Garment had taken up the clarinet at age 13 and mastered the saxophone as well. As a young man he played jazz gigs from Manhattan to the Catskills. For a time he led his own nine-piece band, enjoying a posh life that offered an escape from what he saw as the dreary confines of Brooklyn. He paid for part of his college education by playing tenor saxophone and clarinet in Woody Herman’s band, and in Henry Jerome’s band he teamed with an aspiring young economist named Alan Greenspan, also on saxophone.
