Sugar Johnnie's New Orleans Creole Orchestra The New Orleans Feetwarmers Bechet-Spanier Big Four. Biography by Scott Yanow. A major figure in early jazz, outstanding clarinettist, only soprano saxophonist of consequence for decades, made melodically rich and emotional music.

Sidney Bechet (May 14, 1897 – May 14, 1959) was an American jazz saxophonist, clarinetist, and composer. He was one of the first important soloists in jazz, beating trumpeter Louis Armstrong to the recording studio by several months. His erratic temperament hampered his career, and not until the late 1940s did he earn wide acclaim. Bechet was born in New Orleans in 1897 to a middle-class Creole of color family.

The Legendary Sidney Bechet. Recorded between 1932 and 1941, these sessions capture one of the true men of genius in jazz history, at the top of his game in several awesome group contexts. The hot licks of "I Found a New Baby," "Shag," and "Maple Leaf Rag" are traded by Bechet and trumpeter Tommy Ladnier, co-leaders of the New Orleans Feetwarmers. The jazz that emerges is so New Orleans, so silky, so mellow, so transporting.
