Early this month I had a posting about the possible Bix influence on the piano solo recording of Moonstone by Johnny Johnson.
Thanks to the immense generosity of Rob, forum readers can now listen to Moonstone and its flipside On the Parkway.
The auctioneer for the recording wrote, "Recorded in 1934, the titles are Moonstone' b/w 'On The Parkway' - beautiful solos on these two originals by Johnny Johnson - has Bix Beiderbecke piano influence esp. on A side."
I don't hear a Bix influence. If anything, I might say a soupçon of Gershwin. Opinions?
