Bix's Dorm Building to be torn down

by Laura Demilio

Hey, isn't anyone bothered by this? Doesn't it seem a shame that a nice historical old dorm building is going to be razed, for what -- a supposed state of the art residence? It seems more fitting that something of historical significance, where Bix stayed as a student, practiced music, hung out with his buddies, should remain on that campus -- and also not be renovated beyond recognition.

Although it's pretty funny how EVERY place Bix was at was where he supposedly composed "In A Mist." A school dorm, a hotel room, an apartment, while he was working in St. Louis with the Trumbauer band, the shabby cabin at Hudson Lake. . . . .
