Mr Bechet Personnel: Budd Johnson: tenor and sopreano saxophone/ Earl Hines: piano/ Jimmy Leary: bass/ Panama Francis: drums Recorded at the Seed Studio in Vallauris, France on July 18, 1974 Engineer: Gerhard Lehner Budd Johnson didn't do much recording as a leader, so this French studio date is particularly valuable. He's reunited with Earl Hines, with whom he played during three stints between 1932-1942; they're joined by drummer Panama Francis and bassist Jimmy Leary. The title track is an original tribute to the king of soprano saxophonists. Though it was his second instrument, Johnson delivers a powerful solo with his own unique tone. He's back to tenor sax for the bluesy "Am I Wasting My Time?" and clearly enjoys himself on Hines' romping "Linger Awhile." Like all of Budd Johnson's releases, this LP is strongly recommended. AMG/Ken Dryden REVIEW HIFI+ NO.52 : DENNIS D DAVIS Budd Johnson & Earl Hines Mr.Bechet Pure Pleasure PPAN 006 This is Pure Pleasure's second release from the French Black £t Blue catalog. The label issued dozens of blues and traditional jazz titles, and knowledgeable collectors have been picking up any they happen across as they feature generally good performances in truly outstanding sound. This is a quartet recording from 1974, with Johnson on tenor and soprano saxophone, Hines on piano, Jimmy Leary on bass and Panama Francis on drums. Swing jazz records don't sell well, so this was a gutsy choice by Tony Hickmott. It was also an inspired one, as this set couples truly engaging music with audiophile sound. The title of the album is a tribute to the father of the soprano saxophone, Sidney Bechet. Johnson and Hines played together in the 1930s and their reunion forty years later can also be seen as a tribute to Earl Hines, one of the greats. I had never heard this record before and felt a sense of discovery halfway through the first cut. This is one of the gems of the Black ft Blue catalog from a musical perspective. I don't know how good the original sounds, but this re-issue easily deserves a super disc sound rating. While great sounding re¬issues are becoming more common, this is one of the few that has "reach out and touch me" sound quality. Don't miss it! Dennis D Davis / HiFi+
