Which version have you heard?
 
I'd imagine greiffenstein was thinking of Misterioso by Thelonius Monk.

A funny, yes? Shaw retired from the music biz in 1954 and died in 2004.

 
 
Wow. That's amazing.
Today this is going to get a 10 from me because I have clarinets on the brain.  My son thought he lost his... thankfully he didn't!

Also cause I played clarinet too... I really do enjoy this.  
missed me by that much

I bet this served as inspiration for the Get Smart theme.

Sorry about that, chief.
When I was a teenager I had clarinet lessons and thought I had learnt to play the instrument -  but I have no idea how these dudes got some of the sounds heard on this track,
                      
Theme from "Get Smart"

Didn't Peter Gunn have one woman call center, never showing her face - just a spectacular pair of legs - Mary Tyler Moore's break into the big time. 
 
Mary Tyler Moore played the mysterious, leggy secretary on Richard Diamond, Private Detective, not Peter Gunn.

Thank you for helping me learn a new word today, "inimitable".

Way before my time but greatly appreciated. Great for a lazy Saturday morning.

Play the Thelonious Monk version.

 
That's a completely different song which just happens to have the same title as this one, but it would be cool to hear it here.
Divine!
Brilliant.

This is way out of my taste range, but I really enjoy this.
Play the Thelonious Monk version.
It's too bad that this couldn't have been captured and engineered with better equipment. ( not that he wasn't using the best of the time.) Listening to this type music live is a great experience. how about a Benny Goodman or Pete Fountain follow-up?

Thin bowtie music.

Artie Shaw was a extremely successful, popular, and influential bandleader and musician; it's a safe bet that Henry Mancini was familiar with his work and influenced by it.
Not a serious jazz fan, so I never go looking for this stuff.  Thanks Bill, for bringing this one to me.  
Kind of trippy, eh?

This is so wonderful to listen to (silkily-swinging, scary, beautifully played), and it is so timeless, that I have to give it a 10. So much older music that I've never heard, so little time....
Ahhh! I'm so glad you played this, haven't heard it in ages.

Another fabulous clarinetist is Pete Fountain. I grew up listening to him thanks to my dad's eclectic music collection. Great stuff.

Now I have an ear worm, trying to remember where I've heard the tune before.

Artie Shaw was one of jazz's best clarinetists...  great big band sound...  this classic music is good for the ears...

My Dad always claimed the '40's had the best music and the coolest cats... i would have to agree after hearing this gem.
Artie Shaw is new to me.. way ahead of his time me thinks!
