Bix Beiderbecke’s legend has grown with jazz but too few have actually heard what this remarkable musician did. These tracks from his earliest recordings are pure examples of his gift for melodic improvisation and show the solid musical basis on which the reputation--and the legend--is based. As a bonus, this package also contains the rare Muggsy Spanier Bucktown Five recordings.
