A marginal wherever the margin, Bechet was a flamboyant rebel throughout an existence filled with eclipses an itinerant hoodlum. Like Josephine Baker, with whom he triumphed in 1924 in the Parisian “Revue Nègre”, the saxophonist with a febrile vibrato had only two loves: New Orleans and Paris. He left his native city, where he met the pioneers of jazz, when he was still quite young, in 1917, and travelled the world. In 1929, after a fight in the Pigalle Quarter in Paris, he was thrown into jail, deported, and banned from returning. He only came back to the French capital in 1949, and quickly became an immense star, carried on the wave of the “New Orleans Revival”. He’d come full circle.
