A friend of mine and I get into this argument all the time.

I say “it’s Sidney Bechet.”

He says “Artie Shaw”.

I then say “they are two different style musicians.”

He then scowls and says “Don’t you think I know that?  We are talking about the instrument, not style nuances.”

He’s a stubborn Irishman so it’s no use having this type of discussion with him.  What do you people think is the answer?
