Feat. Bix Beiderbecke


This recording was made in New York City on February 4th 1927 with Bix Beiderbecke cornet, Bill Rank trombone, Frankie Trumbauer c-melody sax & leader, Jimmy Dorsey clarinet & alto sax, Paul Mertz piano, Eddie Lang guitar, and Chauncey Moorehouse drums.

*"Singin' the Blues" was composed by Con Conrad and J. Russel Robinson, with lyrics written by Sam Lewis and Joe Young.

The first minute of the song consists of Frankie Trumbauers' sax solo, followed by Bix Beiderbecke's cornet solo for the second. The third minute features a short clarinet solo by Jimmy Dorsey the clarinetist in Trumbauer's Orchestra at that time. "Singin' the Blues" is now considered a jazz classic due to Bix and Tram's ability to swing this slow tempo ballad and the record's lasting effects of inspiration on other musicians particularly Lester Young.
