Though a legendary figure from his monumental contributions to the clarinet and soprano saxophone's role in jazz, it was the compositions of Sidney Bechet that inspired master saxophonist David Liebman and guitarist John Stowell to dig deep into his catalog to compile and explore this set of rarely heard gems. Each possessing singular voices themselves that have inspired generations of other performers, Liebman & Stowell have created a very personal and intimate duo project celebrating another giant's work, their conversations making for compelling listening.

The idea for this album had been planted ten years earlier, taking saxophonist Christof Lauer that long to develop this project focusing on American jazz pioneer Sidney Bechet and his French-Creole-inspired compositions. Together with the NDR Bigband, Lauer looks at Bechet in an entirely new way, interpreted by someone from a free jazz background who developed his unmistakable sound playing with legends such as Stan Getz. Recorded in only four days, Petite Fleur presents these unmistakable Bechet classics in a new light thanks to Lauer's distinctive tone and the multilayered arrangements.

For generations, Sidney Bechet's legacy of great jazz recordings has been reissued carefully, both casually and haphazardly. One of several chronological options, the 12-volume Masters of Jazz "Complete Edition" takes a most exactingly thorough approach, mapping Bechet's every appearance in the recording studio, week by week and session by session, regardless of who was initially designated as the primary artist. 1923, Vol. 1 in the series covers a four-month period from late July to early November 1923…

Sidney Bechet was the first important jazz soloist on records in history (beating Louis Armstrong by a few months). A brilliant soprano saxophonist and clarinetist with a wide vibrato that listeners either loved or hated, Bechet's style did not evolve much through the years but he never lost his enthusiasm or creativity. A master at both individual and collective improvisation within the genre of New Orleans jazz…

Dixieland jazz can be said to have originated in New Orleans in the early 1900’s when band members began to improvise or ‘jazz’ up a melody rather than play it ‘straight’ as in the score. Improvisation is by its very nature unique to each performer, but what separated the New Orleans players from others was that they improvised as an ensemble not as solo instrumentalists: as one player played the melody, others together improvised around it.

There are few sounds in American popular music more thrilling and sublimely satisfying than the harmonies of Don and Phil Everly, the Everly Brothers, and this album features them singing a dozen great songs that have come to be associated with them. So what's the problem? Between 1957 and 1960, the Everly Brothers recorded for Cadence Records, where they enjoyed a run of hits with such songs as "Bye Bye Love," "Wake Up Little Susie," "All I Have to Do Is Dream," "Bird Dog," "Til I Kissed You," and "Devoted to You." In 1960, Don and Phil left Cadence for a more lucrative deal at Warner Bros. Records, where they continued to score hit records.
