Treat It Gentle (A Da Capo paperback)
This autobiography was taken down in interviews with John Ciardi and Joan Reid, and put into book form by Desmond Flower. In it, Bechet reacalls his life in music, highlighting his narrative with tales of Sunday afternoon bucking contests between black and Creole musicianers, his deportation from London, and the gunfight that put him in jail in Paris."
"One of the most eloquent autobiographies ever written by an American artist." -- -Martin Williams
