Igor Stravinsky wrote the Ebony Concerto in 1945 for the Woody Herman band known as the First Herd. It is one in a series of compositions commissioned by the bandleader/clarinetist featuring solo clarinet. Herman recorded the concerto in the Belock Recording Studio at Bayside New York.[1] He said about it: "[The Ebony Concerto is a] very delicate and a very sad piece."[2] Stravinsky felt that the jazz musicians would have a hard time with the various time signatures. Saxophonist Flip Philips said "during the rehearsal [...] there was a passage I had to play there and I was playing it soft, and Stravinsky said 'Play it, here I am!' and I blew it louder and he threw me a kiss!'"[3] Many years later, Benny Goodman recorded the piece with the Columbia Jazz Ensemble conducted by the composer. Movements Allegro moderato Andante Moderato. Con moto A typical performance lasts about nine minutes.
