Sidney Bechet, The Best of Sidney Bechet, Blue Note Records. Im a sucker for these old recordings. Bechet was the smoothest soprano sax player ever, and one of the most solid links to the earliest days of jazz. By the time these records were made, Bechet was in his 50s, and had been fine-tuning his life-long style for most of those years. He was a very sensual player, and he always dominated the ensembles, despite the somewhat polyphonic approach of the old school style. He was a soloist, but there were usually counter-melodies going on around him. Highly recommended stuff.
