Dick Lee's Bechet Tribute
Check out the latest Festival programme here!
Sidney Bechet was the undisputed king of early New Orleans jazz clarinet and one of the most innovative and original soprano saxophonists in jazz. He played with huge power and a big vibrato, in a style that brought New Orleans warmth to classic jazz and swing. Clarinettist, Dick Lee, has long been inspired and here he is with a six piece band opening a window on Bechet with an entire concert dedicated to his music.
