RIP Chick Corea!

Speaking of piano players from The Miles Davis Experience, always loved Herbie Hancock's playing on this alternate take:

Sydney Bechet [1952] - Si Tu Vois Ma Mere


Sidney Bechet was born in 1897 in New Orleans. He grew up there learning the music of that city, and its rich Jazz. Soon he was traveling the world playing in bands (and met and performed with Louis Armstrong). But his personality let him down. He was violent and mean, and found himself arrested a couple of times. He finally called it quits from the U.S., and well into his 50s, he moved to Paris. There he found a home and recorded many tributes to that city.

Si tu vois ma mère‘ (if you see my mother) is one of a number of French tunes recorded by Bechet in his later years. His own composition, it was first released in 1952. He had much bigger hits with his French titles – ‘Petite Fleur‘, ‘Dans les rues d’Antibes‘ and ‘Les Oignons‘.
