AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

This LP features the great New Orleans soprano-saxophonist Sidney Bechet in three different settings. He is heard as the star of pianist Joe Sullivan's quartet in 1945, matching power and creativity with pianist James P. Johnson in a 1946 quartet and on five jams with clarinetist Mezz Mezzrow in 1947. Throughout, Bechet stars and is typically inspired on this familiar material.
