Renowned for being one of the greatest jazz musicians, Sidney Bechet has signed during his career more than 200 compositions, some as famous as “Petite Fleur”, “In the streets of Antibes” or “Les Onions” . Other pieces, less known, are however real masterpieces. In Duke Ellington’s words, Sidney Bechet was simply “the greatest soloist and creator of the history of Jazz”.
To pay homage to his father, Daniel Bechet, only son of Sidney Bechet, being him on the drums, surrounded himself with the best specialists of this music by approaching the orchestra of Olivier Franc.
Clarinettist and Soprano Saxophonist, many times awarded by “The Academy of Jazz” and then by the “Hot Club of France”, Olivier Franc is essential on the scene of the traditional French jazz. He is unanimously recognized as the best disciple of Sidney Bechet. Regularly invited by Wynton Marsalis for tributes to Sidney Bechet, in recent years, he has the privilege of playing on Sidney Bechet’s personal saxophone.
The quintet – composed of Jean-Baptiste Franc on piano, Gilles Chevaucherie on double bass, Daniel Bechet on drums, Olivier Franc on soprano saxophone and Benoît de Flamesnil on trombone – sings Sidney Bechet’s most famous compositions, but also some less known ones from his American period until 1949, others completely unpublished and finally some original compositions of the orchestra, as well as great standards of jazz.
