There'll Come a Time

by Alberta

I don't believe I heard this comment on this forum, but it struck me as so true that I feel obligated to pass it along. I can't even give credit where credit is due because I forget who made the comment, but I believe it is someone whose name I've now forgotten who is blacklisted here. I have always disliked the Bix work on There'll Come a Time, and I'm embarrassed to say I never enjoyed Red Nichols's playing much. This very observant person remarked that in his opinion Bix is doing a Red Nichols imitation (I don't think that was the word he used) on that record. Whenever I listen to it now, it strikes me that he was correct, that Bix was indeed copying Red, possibly a good-natured parody???. I wonder what others have to say.
