I have been a big Bix fan for many years, and was delighted when I purchased this CD. Bix, in my opinion, was the best jazz cornetist of all time, and ranks as my favorite jazz musician. The tone he was able to achieve on his cornet just floors me every time I listen to his records. This collection does a good job of bringing together some of his best recordings along with his rarest, and several tracks he might not even have played on! (I think most have agreed that Bix was NOT on the Lou Raderman sides). I would easily give this disc 5 stars if it weren't for the dull, lifeless remastering, which really dampens the sound and sucks the tone right out of Bix's cornet. I have a Parlophone re-issue 78rpm of "At The Jazz Band Ball" and even with a little surface noise, the clarity and brilliance is far beyond the remastered track on this disc. If you really like Bix, save your money and invest in the "Bix Restored" series which features excellent transfers by John R. T. Davies. If you only want one or two Bix discs, this is a good one to get. The discography is very good and the notes are o.k. Of course, the music is beyond compare, and the only thing that would improve this disc would be better transfers/remastering.

Let me first say this... if you want to listen to Bix Beiderbecke's short stint with the Frankie Trumbauer Orchestra on CD, you have two choices: the JSP box set, and two Columbia CD's from the early '90s (this, and Volume 1) . The JSP set does give you more tracks, but all the essential tracks are available on the Columbia set too. A number of the tracks in the JSP set don't even have Bix on them.

So which option wins out? I own both sets, and have compared extensively. Risking the anger of the John R.T. Davies fans, i'll have to give the nod to the Columbia discs. Read on for the differences you will hear (if you want to hear them).

The JSP set. This was re-mastered from very clean 78s by one of the best musical restorers of the last 30 years. There is a nice heft to the music, with strong bass present. Dynamic range is pretty good, but a little lacking in the upper register. You can especially notice when someone takes a solo, it sounds like you have your hands slightly covering your ears, and loses some of that upper-end definition. Still, this definitely sounds better than one might think for very early electrical (microphone) recording.

The Columbia set. This was re-mastered from the original metal and glass parts from the Columbia vaults. While there is a bit less heft, and could use a hair more bass, this definitely offers the music cleaner and more transparent. You can really hear every solo very smoothly and cleanly. It's more transparent and crisp than the JSP set.

So, both sets have their ups and downs. The problem with the JSP set is that no matter how talented the late John RT Davies was, he could only do so much, as he didn't have access to the original masters. He had to use consumer-level 78's.

This is Bix at his best. It is joyous music. It is not modern, but it is superb. I recommend it.
