The sound quality is the best I've heard on a Bechet CD: bright, crisp high range that does proper justice to the cutting, agressive sound unique to Sidney. If you have any taste for traditional New Orleans flavored traditional jazz or swing, you would be nuts not to nail down a copy, especially at the ridiculously low price being charge by third party vendors. Do it now, before this materpiece disappears.
I particularly wanted the performances of The Mooche and Strange Fruit on these sessions, and that made this purchase a no-brainer.
