9780028725000: Bix: Man and Legend

Bix Beiderbecke, famous before he was twenty and dead in a New York City hotel room at twenty-eight, was the prototype of the self-destructive "young man with a horn" - and one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time. Here is the fascinating accurate account of Bix's rapid rise to fame in the Roaring Twenties, and just as rapid descent. It is a virtual diary of his life, exhaustively researched for over 17 years and based on interviews with over 650 people who knew him. It includes a discography that makes all previous Bix's studies obsolete, and more than 100 photographs from jazz history, most of them published here for the first time.
