Artist's mistake could have been --by Laura Demilio Who is to say the artist didn't differentiate properly between a trumpet and a cornet, and just drew without accurately portraying that Andy and Bix played cornet, and not trumpet? I always thought the decorated cornet Bix had looked large, anyway.
Although, as said before, the "Whiteman band" part of the ad is not in color, but a green-tinted black and white, even looking at the original more than a difficult copy (and I did the best I could) it seemed to me the artist was trying to depict a decorated horn, but it just could be the smear of age.
Something about the shape of the profile and head just looks a little more Bix than Andy S to me.
