Another Interpolation of Bix's Music

by Albert Haim

Paul kindly sent an mp3 file of Armand Hug's May 19, 1956 recording of his own composition "My Old Time Sweetheart" with Phil Darois, bass and Charlie Duke, drums.

A piece of Bix's "In A Mist" is interpolated at the beginning and at the end, no accident; a deliberate quote.

I remind you of the album

Bix Hug.Jazzology JCE-83 (Volume 33 of the Jazz Piano Heritage Series). The New Orleans jazz pianist Armand Hug plays twenty two numbers associated with Bix, including the four piano compositions, as well as Davenport Blues, Singin' the Blues, I'm Comin' Virginia, I'll Be a Friend with Pleasure, and others.The liners for this album are written by John Perhonis). The interesting aspect of this recording is that Hug plays some of Bix's cornet solos note for note on the piano.
