Essentially a swing-based clarinetist, Phil Bodner has spent most of his career as a studio musician. Among his more notable jazz gigs have been with Benny Goodman (1955), the Gil Evans Orchestra with Miles Davis (1958), Oliver Nelson (1962), J.J. Johnson (1965-1968), and Bill Evans (1974). In addition to his group the Brass Ring, he has recorded just a few sets as a leader (for Stash and Jazz Mania), making one regret that he could not have spent a larger portion of his career playing jazz. ~ Scott YanowPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
