"This CD begins with the Tommy Ladnier Bluebird date of 1938 featuring Bechet (as "King Pops"), a couple of Blue Note sessions, the Varsity Haitian music session of 1939, and a Bechet Feetwarmers date for Bluebird. The Ladnier session is a real gem, and the Blue Note recording of "Summertime" is a masterpiece. The Haitian music session with Willie the Lion on piano is not to everyone's taste (not mine, for instance), but the Feetwarmer's date makes up for it in spades: "Sidney's blues" from this date is Bechet at his very best."
