p_sunshinem.jpgAccording to the Internet source given below, Monty Sunshine was an English jazz clarinetist, who is known for his clarinet solo on the track "Petite Fleur", a million seller for the Chris Barber Jazz Band in 1959. During his career, Sunshine worked with the Eager Beavers, the Crane River Jazz Band, Beryl Bryden, George Melly, Chris Barber, Johnny Parker, Diz Disley and Donegan's Dancing Sunshine Band.
Personal remarks:
For my taste Monty Sunshine is Mr. Clarinet - sorry Acker. I saw him several times in the early 1960s both live and on television. His version of Wild Cat Blues was an inspiration to adapt my own version for recorders.
