Fountain grew up listening to the sounds of George Lewis, Raymond Burke, Benny Goodman and Irving Fazola, who were all famous Dixieland Jazz clarinetists of his childhood.
His sound was said not to imitate just one of their sounds, but to be a combination of all of their sounds together.
By the time Pete was 16, he already made a name for himself on Bourbon Street.
Pete performed with several jazz bands during his life, including the Junior Dixieland Band, Phil Zito’s International Dixieland Express, The Basin Street Six, The Dukes of Dixieland, and Al Hirt just to name a few. He was in Heaven.
