Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As is usual with Membran issues, there are no discographical details included with this box but these can easily be traced as they are readily available on the web. To summarise briefly, this ten disc anthology includes examples of Bechet's recordings with Noble Sissle, and those for RCA Victor, Blue Note, HRS, French Vogue, and various other labels. The main omissions are the King Jazz sessions, those with Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong, and the 1923-5 Okeh's with Clarence Williams.

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.

For the price, this purchase could hardly be bettered. It is by no means a comprehensive coverage of the Bechet oeuvre, but offers a fair sampling of his work across the years. Negatives: there is no discography, so you have to search elsewhere for the personnel - not that easy when no dates are given; some classic tracks are missing, notably 2.19 Blues and Coal Cart Blues from the incomparable 1940 session with Louis Armstrong; and some tracks seem to be alternative takes - the versions of Just One Of Those Things and Love For Sale from 1947 are inferior to the ones put out elsewhere. On the positive side, there are tracks here which show a lesser known side of Bechet: the Caribbean numbers, for example. Bechet rarely fails to grab the attention, whatever he does, and to get hold of ten discs of classic and not-quite-so classic Bechet for less than a tenner is indisputably a bargain. This won't supply all the Bechet a body could desire, but will provide a fair-sized chunk of it.

I had missed this CD collection the first time I was looking to buy something by Sidney Bechet but stumbled across this like I had Sidney Bechet. For £10 this is an absolute steal. The music is so fresh, soulful and original. The only downsides are no notes and information about the recordings and the recorded volume on disc 10, which is largely live recordings, is lower than the other 9. I am no expert and it would have been nice to have a little information. Apart from that you couldn't go wrong with this collection. Another instant hit and I've played it every day to work and back in the car. I want more!!!!

The music's fine but whoever produced this 10 CD collection needs to study his market! Surely it's obvious that customers who would like a 10CD set by Sidney Bechet will be jazz lovers and a characteristic of virtually all jazz lovers is that they want to know when each track was recorded and who the musicians were who were playing on it. In this case we have 10 CDs - that's 197 tracks - and no information at all except the title of each track. The buyer therefore has no chance as he needs at least a little information if he is make sensible use of a discography, particularly when the subject is a prolific recorder like Sidney Bechet. Therefore I give the producer 0/10 for customer service and -10 for common sense!
