DCE, it was during a half-time show for a game Homer was watching on TV. The group "Hooray for Everything" was performing, and Homer said "Ooh, I like these guys. Such a great attitude," or something like that.

Considering Kurt's total lack of interest in the Foo Fighters, I always feel a bit weird on Fridays as I listen to Kurt and watch Sonic Highways on tv at the same time.

oh yeah, actually this piece doesn't have the clarinet. whoops.
  Fri. 12/5/14 4:58pm Dean:

My whoops. To learn why three artists are listed, I visited the ECM page for the recording. An excerpt from the clarinet piece started streaming, and I thought it was the violin sonata!

Man, ever since Carm's comment, I've been trying to figure out what performance he's talking about. No new performances since SNL in November, Kimmel in October had an orange guitar... I'm gonna assume it was a rerun of his Arsenio bit. But who knows? Mystery Prince performance!
