DOWN BEAT original review: Sidney Bechet in Concert at the Brussels Fair 1958
“To take some of the tired tunes on this LP and make them, as he did, come alive once more takes more than facility and experience. It takes that rare artistic fire that Sidney Bechet, perhaps more than any of his contemporaries (aside from Armstrong) had in such great quantities.” (Ralph J. Gleason)
