Bix Beiderbecke
    #2395965 - 03/02/04 06:12 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I dont know if any of you know about Bix Beiderbecke, but he was an amazingly talented white jazz musician back in the 20's.

He had perfect pitch and had an amazing musical memory. Unfortunately, due to the fact that he couldnt play the music he wanted to, he died of an early death (28) due to complications from alcoholism (lumbar pneumonia).

His music is absolutely fantastic tho, nice jazz.

If you are interested, look for:

In A Mist - A 3rd stream piano piece

Singin the Blues - signature piece, Trombauer on the sax, bix on the cornet.

Jazz me blues - another good cornet piece.

Young Man With A Horn is loosely based on him, tho the movie is terribly inaccurate...im speaking of the book.


"Human suffering has been caused because all too many of us cannot grasp that words are only tools for our use, and that the mere presence of a word in the dictionary does not mean it necessarily refers to something definitive in the real world"
--Richard Dawkins, "The Selfish Gene"

"It is the mind which creates the world about us, and even though we stand side by side in the same meadow, my eyes will never see what is beheld by yours."
-George Gissing

"Without a firm idea of himself and the purpose of his life, man cannot live, and would sooner destroy himself than remain on earth, even if he was surrounded by bread."
--Fyodor Dostoevsky
