American jazz clarinetist.

Born : December 08, 1922 in New York City, New York.

Yaged was strongly influenced by [a=Benny Goodman]'s playing style. He began playing clarinet at the age of 12 after hearing Goodman's broadcasts in 1935. He studied under a clarinetist for the New York Philharmonic, but turned down a classical career to play jazz in New York nightclubs.

Yaged has played clarinet continuously, with such musicians as [a=Phil Napoleon], [a=Coleman Hawkins], [a=Henry "Red" Allen], and [a=Jack Teagarden]. In 1956, he served as a consultant on Benny Goodman's musical style for The Benny Goodman Story. Beginning in the 1960s, he began working primarily as an ensemble leader, working in New York City.

In the 1990s he worked in Felix Endico's swing band.

From 1996-97, he worked under the musical direction of bandleader [Jack Vartan at the Stony Hill Inn, Bergen County, New Jersey with the Jack Vartan 14pc. Swing Big Band.
