JAZZ NOCTURNE 1 - Bunk, Bocage and Bechet in Boston

JAZZ NOCTURNE 1 - Bunk, Bocage and Bechet in Boston
£12.99
CD / Product Number: JCCD3036

This is the first of four CDs dedicated to the music of Bunk Johnson or Sidney Bechet. It includes a rehearsal session with Bunk and Bechet for their radio appearances. Plus it gives us the first of the Bechet/Bocage sessions. These sessions are also notable for the work of pianist Ray Parker and drummer George Thompson who are both excellent front row jazzmen, but who have tended to be forgotten in the presence of the great like Bunk, Sidney and the inimitable Pops Foster.
The personnel on the first 9 tracks, the rehearsal session from April 1945, are Bunk Johnson, Sidney Bechet, Ray Parker, George Thompson and Pops Foster. Tracks 10-16 feature Peter Bocage with Sidney Bechet, plus Ray, George and Pops as before.
