My own favorite Australian trumpeter/cornetist is Bob Barnard

by David Tenner

A few Bix-related things he has recorded:

"Tain't So, Honey Tain't So" at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzL-ldyA0Ho&list=PL3_ZGNoDqePd8L-I3rxm7XyEMH-GJk292&index=6 (with Ralph Sutton)

From the same album: "China Boy" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFX_ClWilvg&index=11&list=PL3_ZGNoDqePd8L-I3rxm7XyEMH-GJk292

"Clarinet Marmalade": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RAnE0bFMv4&list=PL3_ZGNoDqePd8L-I3rxm7XyEMH-GJk292&index=10

And from 2010, here he is playing "Royal Garden Blues": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBtxrQuA0bk

And from much earlier, "The Baltimore": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6ooAmyWr98&index=29&list=PLVM_DSMnd4TBOBsGd4Trx76qbMLHa9syx

Barnard is, however more an Armstrong than a Bix man. Here he is in 1957 playing "Confessin'": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtEXVjDuRB0

A few other Barnard recordings of Armstrong material:

"That's My Home" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdqM8SKpUVE&index=23&list=PLVM_DSMnd4TBOBsGd4Trx76qbMLHa9syx

"King of the Zulus": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_Yr-UnGSTY&list=PLVM_DSMnd4TBOBsGd4Trx76qbMLHa9syx&index=21

"Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVwBT8_drHQ&list=PLVM_DSMnd4TBOBsGd4Trx76qbMLHa9syx&index=27
