Hot Jazz Movie 1930 with Sidney Bechet

I used to want to play soprano sax like Sidney Bechet. I even bought a vintage one and took lessons. I didn't get very far, but Sidney was my hero for a time. Here's an amazing clip from a 1930 film with Lilian Harvey and Willy Fritsch. Enjoy SIDNEY BECHET AND HIS NEW YORKERS in Berlin 1930. Be warned: there are some crazy monkeys and wild dancers in this YouTube video. This clip is a bit long, but interesting.
