Sidney is the best, the most important jazzman, better of a litlle i don’t know tan The great Satch. I have a lot of his records, and never spend a month without not hearing him.What i prefer is him playing the clarinet. Anyway in France he began another life with French musicians, in the 50 years with moreover claude luter, and before with André Reweliotty. One of my regrets is that i have never meet him.
Anyway, buy and listen alla the recirds you can afford.

Merry christmas

Maceo Leon Thomas says:

Today is the birthday of the great Sidney Bechet.  Born in New Orleans, Louisiana on May 14, 1897.  He was born into a musical family.  His father Omar in addition to being a shoe maker, played the flute.  All of his older brothers also played instruments.  His brother Leonard gave him his very first instrument, a clarinet, when Sidney was sis or seven.  He was a child genius!  He was soooo good, that he taught futuer jazz great Johnny Noone to play the clarinet.

For s short time he played with the great Duke Ellington's first band, "The Washingtonians."  He also played, on several occassions, along side fellow native born legend the great Louis Armstong.  One of the best recordings of these two giants playing together is on the great Alberta Hunter's recording "Early Everymorning."  It is off the charts!  All three of them absolutely shine!

Happy Birthday Sidney Bechet!
