Product Description

“Bix Restored” is the CD version of Sunbeam Records’ mammoth 20-LP Bix anthology, and is the result of a worldwide search for the best existing 78 rpm records and test pressings of all recordings on which legendary cornetist Bix Beiderbecke appeared.

These recordings are presented in sound quality far superior to all previous reissues of this material (including the original Sunbeam LPs), thanks to the vaunted efforts of remastering engineers John R. T. Davies and Michael Kieffer. Taken as a whole, the series presents for the first time anywhere ALL original issues and ALL extant alternate takes on which Bix plays, many of which are making their first appearance on CD. Each set comes complete with a 24-page booklet compiled by Randy Skretvedt, author, entertainment historian and Past Times publisher.

Record collectors who contributed recordings to this project include Dr. Demento and Brian Rust. Greater care was also taken to present these recordings at the proper pitch than has previously been possible. Since many of the original Victor recordings slow down gradually during the performance, these recordings have never been presented at the correct pitch (even on the original 78s!) until now, using digital speed correction methods and the infallible ear of musician Dan Levinson to guide us. Volume 4 of “Bix Restored” covers Bix’s recording career from June 19, 1928 through September 15, 1930, and contains 64 tracks (“Concerto in F” counts as three tracks). It includes more of the great small group sessions with Frank Trumbauer. Other highlights of the set include Whiteman’s recordings of “China Boy,” “Sweet Sue,” Gypsy” (all featuring great Bix solos), and the complete “Concerto in F” by George Gershwin.
