In 1936 white clarinetist Artie "Shaw" Arshawsky (1910) organized
an octet consisting of a string quartet, a rhythm section, and his clarinet.
This chamber orchestra performed his Interlude in B-flat (may 1936), one
of the most innovative pieces of white jazz,
and Streamline (december 1936).
his full-scale orchestra became more famous for pop ballads such as Cole
Porter's Begin the Beguine (july 1938), but Shaw continued to compose
adventurous music such as
Hold Your Hats (april 1937),
Nightmare (september 1938),
Concerto for Clarinet (december 1940).
Shaw died in 2004.
