Inscription. Considered one of the founders of the modern jazz scene, Alvin Batiste was an avant garde jazz clarinetist and educator. He shared his wisdom and musicianship with numerous students through the Batiste Jazz Institute at Southern University in Baton Rouge where he taught music, jazz history, and the business of music. Practicing what he preached, Batiste enthralled audiences with his unrivaled talent and unsurpassed knowledge of his art. Batiste recorded with the AFO quintet in New Orleans, performed with Cannonball Adderley, and toured with Ray Charles in 1958.
