Saxophonist Budd Johnson didn't record much, which makes this 1974 set with the great Earl Hines all the more interesting. Of course, the real reason it's special is because of some damn-fine music by some outstanding jazzmen. Johnson and Hines are joined by drummer Panama Francis and bassist Jimmy Leary. The title tracks is an original tribute to the king of soprano saxophonists Sidney Bechet.

This LP was originally issued on Black & Blue 33.084, titled 'The Dirty Old Men' minus the track "Mr. Bechet". It is now reissued with the additinal track which has only been available on 'The Definitive Black & Blue Sessions' CD version.
