    Sidney Bechet (1897-1959), who managed to be recorded even before his contemporary and occasional musical partner, Louis Armstrong, remains one of jazz's most important and distinctive soloists. Though a great clarinetist, Bechet was best known for his intense, vibrato-laden tone on the soprano saxophone (an influence on musicians as diverse as Bob Wilber, Johnny Hodges, and avant-gardists Steve Lacy and Albert Ayler). While he never progressed beyond the traditional New Orleans/Dixieland style, Bechet was always a colorful and vibrant presence on the scene, and MASTERS OF JAZZ makes for a fine introduction to this master's later recordings.
