Bix's solo debut


Pianist, cornetist and composer Leon Bismark "Bix" Beiderbecke was born on March 10, 1903 in Davenport, Iowa.

A self-taught cornet player and composer, he was a major figure in early jazz, one of the first musicians to make a name for himself as a soloist.

This recording was made in Richmond, Indiana on January 26th 1925 with Bix Beiderbecke cornet, Tommy Dorsey trombone, Don Murray clarinet, Paul Mertz piano, Howdy Quicksell banjo, and Tom Gargano drums.

*"Davenport Blues" was composed on the spot at the session by Bix Beiderbecke. It was on the B side of the first record to be released under his own name.
