As jazz legends go, they don’t come much bigger than the master clarinettist and soprano saxophonist, Sidney Bechet. Bechet’s story is, of course, well known to all jazz fans, born in New Orleans, recording with Clarence Williams in 1923, even before the great Louis Armstrong, playing with all the greats including Freddie Keppard, Bunk Johnson and King Oliver. Arrested in the UK for assault, returned to the States, left again for a world tour which included Russia before settling in France (where he also served 11 months for assault). And all the while making outstanding music and largely on his own, often very forceful terms. By the time the LP’s and EP’s on this second AVID set were recorded, Bechet had become something of an icon in France, his fame having spread far beyond the coterie of jazz lovers who were his core fans. His image was even used on an expensive brand of chocolates, as well as other merchandise. Bechet’s own compositional skills are to the fore on a number of the sides on this two CD set, including Petite Fleur, a big hit for Bechet and a few years later a million seller for Chris Barber - as well as the suitably moody “Temperamental” and the beautiful “Jacqueline” which Bechet composed in honour of his mistress.
