Hypnotic Sidney Bechet..
on 13 April 2008
Very nearly didn't buy this. No-one had reviewed it so I was rather in
the dark. Now that I have the disc I am addicted to Sidney Bechet! RCA
Victor has given us a first-rate recording - apart from only one track
from 1949 which is a little scratchy - but I still feel the 5 stars
are merited for the standard of Bechet's artistry. His rendition of
Petite Fleur and Le Marchand De Poisson is hypnotic...He demands your
full undivided attention - and gets it. If you don't know Bechet but
like jazz - buy this CD - and if you are already a Bechet fan, you
won't be disappointed.
