Entertainment Reviews:

Down Beat - 8/92, p.51
3 Stars - Good - " age 20, Bix struts like a parade cornetist, slurring notes with a wink and flourishing off-beat placements preciously; his best recorded work was yet to come.."

Unknown Contributor Role: Bix Beiderbecke.
Considered by some to be one of the first modernists in jazz, Bix Beiderbecke was certainly the first important white man to contribute to the music in a lasting and meaningful way. Ten years before Lester Young, and nearly 30 before the West Coast sound embodied by Chet Baker and Gerry Mulligan, Beiderbecke was playing a cool alternative to Louis Armstrong's hot ensembles. These tracks represent his earliest efforts with The Wolverines (he was just shy of his 21st birthday) as well as some studio pickup groups. Bix's distinctive tone was already present; though his style was in its formative stages, his fecund imagination consistently yields melodic invention, rhythmic precision, and spontaneity.
On "Big Boy" we hear him switching between cornet and piano, his second instrument on which he had ample, swinging facility. The Chicago Cornets referred to in the title are two Bix epigones, Muggsy Spanier and Jimmy McPartland, whose performances (which don't include Beiderbecke) are less strong, but instructive nonetheless.
