Publishers Description: Never before in A rare eyewitness appreciation of a jazz legend Bix has always inspired acclaim, for he was an unmatched master of the cornet. Ralph Berton was privileged enough to have been a fan-and younger brother of Bixs drummer--just as Beiderbeckes genius was flowering, before he died in 1931 at age twenty-eight. Listening from behind the piano, tagging along to honky-tonks and jam sessions, Berton heard some of the most extraordinary music of the century, and he brings Bix and his era alive with a remarkable combination of the excitement of youth and the perspective of the five decades that followed-decades that confirmed Bixs place in the pantheon of jazz.
