However, for all but completists, this is certainly the finest anthology of Bechet's recordings currently available. At its heart are his major American studio recordings from the 1930's and 1940's - a period at which he was playing at his absolute peak. These tracks are some of the classics of traditional/mainstream jazz and have never lost their freshness. Bechet's final French years are represented by a handful of concert recordings with local 'trad' bands. These are enjoyable, but finally inessential, performances.
Sidney Bechet was not only, with Louis Armstrong, one of the earliest of significant jazz soloists but also one of the very finest of any period. He was never a great ensemble player. His powerful soprano sax and clarinet nearly always take the lead and his solos are consistently breathtaking. He had an instantaly recognisable sound which was often copied but never equalled. His best recordings - most of which are collected here - are an essential part of any jazz collection.
The remastering has been very well done and the set as a whole can be recommended without rerservation.
