I don't know this tunes. I sought among the list proposed by
Philippe Baudoin (a French specialist, pianist, teacher and
researcher) and I didn't find anything.

However, about these titles I think to two songs of Georges
Brassens: 'La cane de Jeanne' (Jeanne's duck) and 'Le fossoyeur'
(the grave-digger). I don't think that Bechet played them.
(I have MIDI/Karaoke files for these songs)

I can't say more.

Amitiés à tous !
