      Larkin is very slippery. He praises "modern" recordings and can't,
      then, be accused of narrow-mindedness, but, accused of inconsistency,
      he claims he didn't mean any of it.
      John Chilton, whose biography of Bechet Larkin couldn't, of course,
      have read, talks about how Bechet and Bird had first met (and
      socialised) in New York when Bechet was playing at Jimmy Ryan's.
