Just saw this message haha well it’s all about sound texture style and ornamentation. Also Naftuly played a C clarinet almost all his career, this was recorded with a Bb instrument. And it is typical Shloimke Beckerman style too
Identity of clarinetist and band leader is Beckerman
I concur with Ziliyn. In fact, this was part of the same recording session that yielded the two recordings released as Co 8036-F (mx. nos. 105022 and 105023) under the name Sam Backerman. Quite likely this is the same (or nearly the same) band that had recorded for Emerson two months earlier, ca. April 1924, under the name Raderman’s and Beckerman’s Orch. featuring Alex Fiedel. Alex Fiedel, cornet, Harry Raderman, trombone, Shlumke/Sam Beckerman, clarinet, Sam
Heller, piano, un-id’d drummer.
