Product Description:

There are numerous Sidney Bechet collections named after one of his most enduring compositions, "Petite Fleur." Released in 2008 with cover art dating back to the 1950s, Definitive's "Petite Fleur" is a better-than-average selection of Bechet's Victor/Bluebird recordings from the '30s and early '40s. The old Crescent City processional "High Society" is played by Jelly Roll Morton's New Orleans Jazzmen. The rest of the Victors are by Bechet's New Orleans Feetwarmers, except for "Sheik of Araby" and "Blues of Bechet," which were early experiments in overdubbing by Sidney Bechet's One Man Band; incredibly, they were done using multiple 78 rpm records. Tacked onto the end is the title tune, recorded for the Vogue label in January 1952 at the Salle Playel in Paris during a concert presented by critic and jazz advocate Charles Delaunay. On this track, Bechet is backed by clarinetist Claude Luter and his orchestra. Definitive's "Petite Fleur" is highly recommended as a concentrated sampling of classic recordings made by a master musician during his prime. ~ arwulf arwulf
