Sidney Bechet – Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives To Me (1951)

Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives To Me is recorded November 5, 1951 and appears on The Fabulous Sidney Bechet.

Bechet was in his twilight years at the time of these recordings, and still his soprano sax playing is extremely forceful, cutting through the six-piece ensembles like a beacon, loud as anything yet devoid of stridency. The music is old-school New Orleans swing, and this at a time when bebop and cool were the state of the art. [source]
