Jazz man Woody Allen plays music purely for pleasure  | Palm Beach Entertainment: Events, movies, restaurants, nightlife & more | pbpulse.com: "‘I have no illusions about my playing,’ Allen says, when asked about his band, with whom he plays clarinet each week at New York’s Carlyle Hotel, and with whom he’s traveled the world. (The documentary Wild Man Blues follows one of their European tours.) ‘The guys in the band are sensational, and could play anywhere without impunity. They carry me along. I get by on the fact that I’m a celebrity from the movies,’ he says. ‘That cuts me a lot of slack. I’m enthusiastic over (music) and dedicated to it, but I have no real gift for it.’"
