Re:"Miss You" ...With A Bixian...Solo


You're right. Mickey Bloom really has the Bixian sound. Of all the trumpet/cornet players influenced by Bix in Volume 5 of "Bix Restored," to me Mickey Bloom had the most Bixian sound, even though he is not usually mentioned along with McPartland, Bose, Secrest, etc. As good as they are, IMHO they have a certain harshness of tone at times that Bix just didn't have.
