Bix Beiderbecke

(March 10th 1903 - August 6th 1931)

Leon Bismark "Bix" Beiderbecke grew up in his hometown of Davenport, Iowa where he taught himself to play cornet and piano by ear. His first recordings were made in 1924 as a member of the "Wolverines Orchestra" and "Bucktown Five".

Bix went on to find steady work with the dance orchestras led by Jean Goldkette and later Paul Whiteman but his struggle with alcohol addiction did much to stifle his career. He also produced successful recordings as a soloist often billed under the name of Frank Trumbauer or his own. Bix Beiderbecke died alone tragically in his Queens, New York apartment during an alcoholic seizure in 1931.
