      Albert, you said it well: "Bix's music does not alternate in moods. I think the elements are thoroughly amalgamated, intimately combined in such a coherent manner that the music evokes in the listener (at least in this listener) simultaneous feelings of happiness and sadness."

      Joy and longing are intertwined in Bix's music. It satisfies and yet leaves the hearer with a yearning for something, just beyond our senses, something lovely that, even as we listen, we know will elude our grasp.
