- Bob Wilber: Spreadin' Joy - The Music of Sydney BechetReview by Simon Sez
After avoiding Bechet’s songs for years, Wilber paid tribute to his former teacher a year after Bechet died. Rather than playing soprano like Bechet, on this album Wilber is heard on clarinet, tenor and bass clarinet. He plays his own versions of songs associated with Bechet, with the help of such greats as trombonist Vic Dickenson and pianist Dick Wellstood. It is fun to hear what they do with such little known songs as “Polka Dot Stomp” and “Who’ll Chop Your Suey When I’m Gone.”
Simon Sez: Rather than try to imitate Sidney Bechet on his tribute album Spreadin’ Joy (CJ05), Bob Wilber plays Bechet’s music his own way.
