Product Description

Recorded 1949 and 1950. Mastered with 20-bit Super Bit Mapping by Odea Murphy.

Amazon.com

Sidney Bechet could generate lines of trumpetlike clarity and power with his soprano saxophone, and there's a special chemistry apparent in the three sessions with cornetist Wild Bill Davison included in this CD. Recorded in 1949 and '50, it concentrates on the standard repertoire of traditional jazz, including spirituals, blues, a few warhorses composed by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, and several Clarence Williams tunes that Bechet had first recorded in the 1920s. The vintage of the material is meaningless, though, as Bechet and Davison approach it with spontaneity and joy, infusing fresh life into even "Tiger Rag." Bechet matches Davison's clarion force, and the soprano saxophonist inspires the aggressive cornetist to some of his most expressive playing on record. The great Kansas City bassist Walter Page contributes magnificently to the first session, while trombonist Jimmy Archey and pianist Joe Sullivan are especially good on the third, but it's the fluid invention of Bechet and his inspiring interplay with Davison that always come to the fore. --Stuart Broomer

Format: Audio CD
Sidney Bechet was the only jazz musician who could keep up with Louis Armstrong in the 20s and, as this album demonstrates, remained a ingenius improvisationalist all of his life. These cuts were recorded when Sidney was around 50 years old. His tone is just powerful as it was when he was in his prime, so overwhelming that even trumpets had trouble matching it. Sidney has the most powerful tone of any soprano saxophonist that ever existed, and developed a wide vibrato that you either love or hate. The concept of this album is actually quite interesting. Sidney records some of his older music with a modern feel. All of his solos are great in this cd, and there are times when they are brilliant. Sidney's earlier playing was slightly more inventive than the tracks on this cd. However, this cd offers a rare chance for you to hear the New Orleans master with great sound quality (most of the blue note jazz cds have undergone excellent remastering). Although this cd is more than enjoyable, some other cd's starring Sidney Bechet are downright intoxicating. I highly recommend that you go to the store today and buy the Ken Burn's Sidney Bechet cd, which can get you more intoxicated than a reefer.

This incredible album showcases some of Sidney Bechet's smoothest and wildest jazz performances of all time. The elegant, blusey "Sister Kate" as well as the fiery, masterful renditions of "Tiger Rag", "I Found a New Baby", "Fidgety Feet", and both takes of the title song are just a few of the many great tracks featured here. A must for any jazz lover and certainly a must for anyone with a taste for true New Orleans-style jazz and for the work of Bechet in general. Highly recommended!

Here is your golden opportunity, while it lasts, to pick up a

fantastic CD. Sydney and Wild Bill are in grand form. In fact, the entire band sounds superb. My favorite tracks on this high

fidelity recording (1949 and 1950, yet the sound is clear with a high and consistent recording level) are Tailgate Ramble, Running Wild, and You Can't Have None of my Jelly Roll.

If you are a fan of early jazz, you will really enjoy this.

I have never cared a lick for soprano sax in easy listening venues. But, when Sydney Bechet blows it, my feet start to dance. You will not go wrong by owning this wonderful CD.

Now, I'll stop yacking so you can get cracking.

Beautifully recorded jazz music from 1922-1925 with Sidney Bechet in all and Louis Armstrong in many tracks. One star off for the documentation: if you want to know who is playing on what track, you have to delve in the written article in the booklet. There is no mention of the artists with the track titles.
But... the music sounds great, and that is what really matters.
