At the Jazz Band Ball~Bix Beiderbecke
Franco Landi | Irvine, CA United States | 07/19/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had heard about Bix's legendary tone and musicianship, so I decided to check it out for myself. It's all true. Bix plays beautifully. Nice re-mastering job; nice selection of tunes from beginning to end.The music is happy, happy music. It puts a smile on my face. The fellas in the band sound as if they were having a great time with it. It's hard to imagine that this was the devil's music of its time. There's no soul-searching or deeper meaning to it, other than fun.Originally, I bought the CD as an exploration into another era, a trip through the time tunnel. Now I can tell that I will be playing it often purely out of pleasure. Nice to meet you, Bix."
A true genius

"I grew up in the same town as Bix, and there is a jazz festival there (Davenport, IA) in his honor. Bix was so revolutionary in his approach, and the only musician with which he can be compared is Satchmo. Louis was an avid Bix fan himself (Ain't nobody sound like him yet). If you want to hear a true genius and jazz revolutionary, get as many of Bix's cds as possible. To paraphrase Hoagy Carmichael, the sound of his cornet is like a woman saying "yes". Amen!"
