Pete Fountain Died

I just heard Pete Fountain had died today at age 86.  I remember about 20 years ago we wandered into his club on Bourbon Street in the French Quarters of New Orleans.  He tooted that horn (clarinet) loudly and fruitfully. 
He was good!

I might have stuck my head in the door of his club in January 1965, when I stuck my head in Al Hirt's Club across the street.  I must have, why else would I buy a record album by him then?

The album I have
