See Bix Beiderbecke Play

In case you haven’t seen Bix in action, here is that now-famous clip of the Paul Whiteman band that is the only sound film we have of Bix Beiderbecke. It’s even shorter, when you factor in the fact that Bix only plays every other measure along with the trumpet section. Doug Ramsey provides this look via Rifftides.
