Bechet Our Contemporary
In Bechet: Our Contemporary, saxophonist and composer Rob Reddy pays homage to jazz legend Sidney Bechet by intertwining original compositions by Bechet with those of his own. Beginning with a single line of melody, Reddy reinterprets Bechet’s work, successfully bringing it into the present day world of jazz.
