Sidney Bechet: at his Best on Film

Many consider Jazz Jamboree, this outstanding 1952 short from France, to be the most exciting Sidney Bechet we have on film. Along with Claude Luter’s band we get a romping “Royal Garden Blues”. I like the spontaneity of the moment even with that still photographer popping up!
