It was in Herrang in 2006 when I heard that song by Sidney Bechet the first time. Skye Humphries used only this particular song the whole week in his classes and pretty soon, the DJs played it also during the nights.
I remember when I was asking for the title: “Blues my naught… what???” Such a long bizarre title was hard to memorise, but eventually I made it and I bought the song right after the camp.
Meanwhile, Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives To Me probably is overplayed on the dance floor but in this case, I don't care. It definitely is one of my absolute all time favourites! Sidney Bechet's style to play the soprano saxophone with a wide vibrato is distinctive!
Be aware, the tune is pretty long!
