All Music Guide - Cub Koda
This collection of Bechet tracks cut between 1932 and 1941 would be worth owning if for nothing else than the inclusion of his one-man-band recording of "Sheik of Araby," the first known instance of overdubbing with Sidney playing clarinet, tenor sax, piano, bass and drums. But everything on here is fine, spirited New Orleans music, played with verve and wild energy. Kicking off with a wild version of "Maple Leaf Rag" by the New Orleans Feetwarmers, the set moves to include Bechet with Jelly Roll Morton, Tommy Ladnier excellent versions of "Weary Blues" and Mezz Mezzrow's "Really the Blues", Dr. Henry Levine's Barefoot Dixieland Philharmonic, and Sidney's later versions of the...

    Some of Bechet's best

    Duke Ellington said of Sidney Bechet ''I think he was the most unique man ever to be in this music.'' This CD contains superb work from Bechet, recorded on RCA during the 30s and 40s. The liner notes, from Bechet student Bob Wilber, are particularly interesting.
