From *Phonograph Monthly Review,* Vol. 2, No. 3 (December 1927)

"Leading the Okeh lists are two disks from that talented combination Tram-Bix and Lang. 40903 couples Krazy Kat and Three Blind Mice, with the latter taking an emphatic first prize. On one side of 40916 is another masterpiece, Wringin’ an’ Twistin’, and on the other a piano solo by Bix Beiderbecke called In a Mist which could be surpassed by only one hot jazz pianist I know of, Arthur Schutt — which is praise indeed. Bix and his Gang have 40923 to themselves, playing the Jazz Me Blues and at the Jazz Band Ball..."

(See for some background on Phonograph Monthly Review. I am going through their issues on, and have already found a few more references to Bix and Tram, which I will mention in other posts..)
