RIP Barel Coppet - Biguine Maestro (1920-2009)

"Born in 1920 in Vauclin, Martinique, Anatole 'Barel' Coppet is a legendary clarinet player and a giant of Antillean music. With a career spanning over fifty years, he spent much of the 50's playing in the cabarets of Paris and performed alongside Duke Elington and Count Basie" (Liner notes from : Tumbélé! Biguine, afro & latin sounds from the French Caribbean, 1963- 1974)
