Rest in Peace, Bix

by Laura Demilio

Today is August 6th. This time I got out old LP's, one of them The Metropolitan Jazz Octet's arrangement of Bix's compositions, the 1960 ambiance so mellow one wants to mix martinis. In the Dark and Candlelights are especially evocative. I skip side One of Bix's contemporaries completely -- the arrangements are a little jarring anyway -- and just get to all the good Bix material on the second side.
