Like many English people in the late 50s my music tastes were mostly blues and soul - my first LP was the Ray Charles Story, then Big Bill Broonzy's Last Sessions.  Soon after I bought a Jimmy Witherspoon album with a good bunch of players - I remember Teddy Edwards and Harry Edison.

Most of the 60s and 70s, when I was going from 14 to 34, I was listening to mostly rock, but still bought my first Billie Holiday, some Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Ornette Coleman, Coltrane, mostly from the 50s or before.  My Big Band collection is more recent - I'd always known Basie and Ellington, but about ten years ago I filled in many other bands.  However most of that is in UK and coming out here trip by trip.

I love the sound with Bechet too.  I usually start people off on the music of that era with Billie Holiday, particularly the tracks with Teddy Wilson.  It seems to be more accessible for some reason.
