Happy 106th Birthday, Bix!

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.
