✨✧ Sidney BechetBechet Souvenirs (with On Parade & Ambiance Bechet) ... CD
Vogue/Sony (France), 1951/1952. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the purest work to ever capture the genius of Sidney Bechet were his recordings in Paris – where the respectful record labels allowed the reedman just the right sort of space for his amazing tone and heartfelt emotion! These sides are a bit late in Bechet's career, but really represent him perfecting his approach, too – never overdone, never gimmicky, and not even trying for any easy cliches that might please the overseas audiences – and instead just right on the money, with a perfect sense of economy in his solos, and a mindblowing tone that will grab you from the very first note on the album! Bechet blows soprano sax throughout – with a tone that was a huge influence on the Coltrane generation – and works with French musicians on all sessions – the first of which features a group led by clarinetist Andre Reweliotty, one more date with clarinetist Claude Luter, and the last a set of "all stars" that includes Guy Longnon on trumpet. CD features 24 tracks in all – material from three different 10" LP releases – with tracks that include "Apex Blues", "Darling Nelly Gray", "Sleepy Time Gal", "Le Marchand De Poissons", "Pattes De Mouche", "Ghost Of The Blues", "Blues", "Girl's Dance", "Because Of You", and his classic "Petite Fleur".

Archie SheppMy Man – Tribute To Sidney Bechet ... CD
Impro (France), 1981. Used ... $6.99
Leave it to Archie Shepp to deliver a tribute to Sidney Bechet with amazing results – a deeply spiritual session that's quite different than the trad jazz outing you might expect! Sure, a few of the tunes are Sidney's – but Shepp's renditions here are completely unique – stretched out and soulful, with the same sort of rich sounds you'd expect from his late 70s European work – a touch of jazz traditionalism, but mixed with all the openly-expressive modes that Archie helped bring to jazz from the 60s onwards. Shepp plays soprano sax, flute, and a bit of piano – and other players on the date include Charles McGee on trumpet, Charles Eubanks on piano, Santi DeBriano on bass, and John Betsch on drums. Michelle Wiley sings on two great numbers – "My Man" and "Blues For Bechet", both done with that all-soul Shepp approach – and other titles include "Premier Bal", "Passport To Paradise", and "Petite Fleur".

VariousJazz From America On Disques Vogue (20CD set) ... CD
Vogue/Sony (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy 20CD ... $64.99
A totally cool little package – one that features 20 different CDs, each done as a different tiny replica of a 10" LP that originally appeared on the Vogue Records label overseas! Vogue was well-known for recording important sessions by American jazzmen in Paris in the early 50s – but this package brings together work that was recorded in America by many of the same artists, and issued by Vogue in unique packages overseas – many of which are replicated here, along with bonus material too! The set features 20 CDs, but includes 40 different albums – as each CD features tracks from original 10" album releases – with full details on tracks, personnel, and other information in the large booklet provided – a great complement to the records by artists who include Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan, Red Norvo, Lester Young, Mahalia Jackson, Spirit Of Memphis Quartet, Wynonie Harris, Earl Bostic, Charlie Parker, Charlie Christian, Art Tatum, Erroll Garner, Sidney Bechet, Miles Davis, and others!

✨✧ VariousSwingin' Dick's Shellac Shakers Vol 2 – Hot Jive, Jumpin' Jazz & Big Band R&B 78s (10 inch LP) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), 1930s/1940s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not the kind of record you might expect – neither a porno session, or a collection of work by artists named Richard – and instead, a sweet stack of rare tracks originally issued on 78rpm shellac – working together here in jiving jazzy brilliance! The work here is from the swing generation and beyond – with a strong focus on the sorts of sounds that would set the tone for the jump jive and R&B generation – including some especially nice vocal tracks! Titles on this second volume include "Ball Of Fire" by Gene Krupa, "Bunch Of Rhythm" by Horace Henderson, "Root Hog Or Die" by The Harlem Hamfats, "Rip Up The Joint" by Sidney Bechet, "Jive" by Cab Calloway, "All The Cats Join In" by Roy Eldridge, "Raid The Joint" by Erskine Hawkins, "Harlem Rhumbain" by Hot Lips Page, and "Who Said Shorty Wasn't Coming Back" by Lucky Millinder.
