Sidney Bechet

I first heard the music of jazz musician and composer Sidney Bechet in a high school English class when a fellow student did a presentation on Philip Larkin’s poem, “For Sidney Bechet.”  Ever since that day, Bechet has been one of my favorite musicians.  His music entrances the listener, transports you to a completely different time.  Here is Bechet’s “Blue Horizon.”  Be prepared to drop whatever you’re doing and just listen.
