At the Jazz Band Ball – Bix Beiderbecke and His Gang, 1927

110000 views! WOW! This is proof that even today, Bix's unique style has many thousands of fans. Thanks for viewing! Here is my first video, At the Jazz Band Ball by Bix Beiderbecke. Composed by LaRocca originally, Bix adds his touch of uniqueness to this rendition. In many ways, Bix Beiderbecke symbolised the Jazz Age. Truly wonderful music, with a truly tragic underside of rotgut and drunkeness. BIX BEIDERBECKE AND HIS GANG: Bix Beiderbecke, c / Bill Rank, tb / Don Murray, cl / Adrian Rollini, bsx / Frank Signorelli, p / Chauncey Morehouse, d. New York, October 5, 1927. EDIT: I have finally got my hands on just about any song Bix played on, so if you want it putting up, just ask! (So far, it appears only his Wolverines stuff is blocked) :)

    I live across the street from the building Bix died in. There’s a plaque commemorating him outside the building. Every August there’s a concert dedicated to him and players and fans gather and have a street party. People come from all over the world. The people in my town do alot to inform residents of his life and work.

    Tom in Sunnyside, Queens New York.

  2. One day I’d like to go and visit that building…

    I’ve just subscribed to your channel. It looks fascinating!. If you ever decide to come to my nabe for a visit, feel free to contact me. Drinks on me!!

  4. Thanks Tom, I’ll keep that in mind! I was actually in NY last year, however I didn’t have the time to get to the Bix apartment – I was so busy seeing all the sights for the first time. I will be back in the future I am sure

    Did you go on a Jazz history tour, or a generic NYC tour?

    You do know that whatever answer you give, I’ll condemn and criticize you for not seeing my town properly.

  6. The answer is…neither! I know a few people who came to visit and showed me around – I met Marty Napoleon, did Radio City Music Hall, Vince Giordanos (many nights!), Empire State, Staten Island Ferry, Natural History Museum, Louis’ House, Times Sq and Brooklyn Bridge.

    Seeing a bit of Queens and Brooklyn did give me a real feel of the place. I even had a pastrami sandwich and cheesecake at Stage Deli…the cheesecake really finished me off!
