Sidney Bechet the great New Orleans jazz man. They used his "Si Tu Vois Ma Mere" in the beautiful new Woody Allen film 'Midnight in Paris'.
The film involves many of the artists writers and painters from 1920's Paris, including F Scott Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald is mentioned in Dylan's "Ballad of a thin man".
I knew I'd get there in the end , you see the whole world is only 5 degrees of separation from Dylan.
