From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Petite Fleur" is an instrumental written by Sidney Bechet and recorded by him in January 1952, first with the Sidney Bechet All Stars and later with Claude Luter and his Orchestra.

In 1959 it was an international hit as a clarinet solo by Monty Sunshine with Chris Barber's Jazz Band.[1] This recording peaked at No. 5 on the US Hot 100[2] and No. 4 in the UK charts.[1] Their version was in A minor, in contrast to Bechet's, which was in G minor.[3]

There was also another recording by Bob Crosby and the Bobcats. Following the Chris Barber instrumental recording, lyrics were added by Fernand Bonifay and Mario Bua in the same year. A different set of lyrics was written by Paddy Roberts and the song was recorded by Teddy Johnson and Pearl Carr in 1959.[4]

Petula Clark recorded the song in French and it was included in her album Hello Paris (1962).[5]
