Bix' Blues


Notes

"It's like a poem." That's what Artie Shaw said about Bix Beiderbecke's solo in "Singin' the Blues".
The first jazz ballad was recorded on February 4, 1927 by Frankie Trumbauer and his Orchestra.

"Singin' the Blues" was a record that stood out amongst all the hot and raging jazz of the day. It inspired musicians to record that tune in a resembling manner and several other compositions followed with a similar structure or vibe.
