The only true rival to Louis Armstrong's crown as the first great jazz improviser, the musically gifted Bechet first mastered and debuted on the clarinet before moving to soprano sax, which he purchased on an early European visit. It was on sax that he was to become a legendary performer and huge influence on so many who have followed. Also an accomplished composer this stylishly presented 3CD set spans the key moments of his career.
