A PORTRAIT OF SIDNEY BECHET IN PARIS
£12.99
CD / Product Number: URCD195

For this third Upbeat Portrait CD, we have chosen a New Orleans musician whose prodigious talent was probably the only one to rival the great Louis Armstrong. There are three sessions featured here giving a rounded glimpse at his overall style and performance - the first recorded in New York with Noble Sissie's Swingsters in 1937, the second in Paris in 1949 with Sydney Bechet and his Feetwarmers and the third with the Sidney Becket Trio in Paris in 1952. Personnel include Sidney Bechet, Zutty Singleton, Lil Armstrong and others - see track listing inside for full details.
