Revered in France during the last decade of his life, Sidney Bechet was one of the seminal forces in the roots of New Orleans jazz and the first musician to give the soprano sax a voice in jazz. This release presents the complete LP Sidney Bechet joue Sidney Bechet (Vogue VRL 3002), which consisted of brilliant performances by Bechet of his own compositions, such as the immortal “Petite fleur”. Thirteen additional Bechet compositions recorded by the saxophonist during the same period fill in CD1. CD2 presents the long unavailable 1958 LP Bravo! (Vogue 33-44001-30 aka Parisian Encounter), one of Bechet’s very last studio dates, and the 1953 album Rendez-Vous avec Sidney Bechet (Vogue L.D. 142).
