The Canadian Antique Phonograph Society


The Life and Music of Bix Beiderbecke
With Steven Gaber


Leon Bismarck "Bix" Beiderbecke, born on the Mississippi River in Davenport, Iowa, in 1903 was, along with Louis Armstrong, the most prominent horn man of the Jazz Age. Self-taught and never able to effectively read music, Bix developed a lyrical style that was clean in tone. Bix played solos improvised on the melody more like a reed player. His exquisite tone did not vary much and while he swung, he swung very close to the ground-beat. Like many contemporaries, he wandered from band to band, gracing groups from the home-grown Wolverines to the great orchestras run by Jean Goldkette and Paul Whiteman. He and saxophonist Frankie Trumbauer often found themselves in the same recording studio with various lineups and their recording of "Singin' the Blues" (with guitarist Eddie Lang) was inarguably one of the finest recordings of their era and contains what is perhaps Bix's most admired 16-bar solo. Steven Gaber will highlight the life of this music legend in what is sure to be an informative presentation.

Be sure to stick around after the presentation to take part
