As we could not confirm that Bix Beiderbecke ever recorded the “Happy Birthday” song, we present for your listening pleasure, ‘Singing the Blues” by Trumbauer’s Orchestra.*
May we recommend 1:25-1:40? That right there would be the sound that lives on.**
* From “Bix and Tram: Bix Beiderbeck with Frankie Trumbauer’s Orchestra, “1947, Columbia records.
**And Jimmy Dorsey (on clarinet) isn’t too shabby, either.
