Bix, cool

Frankie Trumbauer keeping his head down

In 1927, when jazz legends Frankie Trumbauer (sax) and Bix Beiderbecke (cornet) pooled their immense talents on Crying All Day they created a little bit of magic. The sound they made together still has jazz critics (and jazzers) in raptures nearly a century later. I can't get enough of this; it's no good, I'm gonna have to watch the Beiderbecke Affair. Again. (Yes, this is the theme tune.)
