Description

Clarinettist Mezz Mezzrow was a great admirer of Sidney Bechet and made many recordings featuring himself with Bechet for his own record company, the King Jazz label, in the mid forties. This compilation includes sessions from the Mezzrow-Bechet Septet and Quintet. *”Mezz Mezzrow’s playing was not by any means in the same league as Sidney Bechet’s ... but in this set of recordings - made in New York in 1945 and Chicago two years later - Mezzrow ... works around the ever-creative Bechet but he also demonstrates a pleasant rapport ... “ - *from the new liner notes by Chris Albertson.
