    His biographer died??? Tough gig ..... The women were probably drawn to the beauty of his music, which is so apparent in the clip above.:thumbsup:

    That's bad. However there was an album from the early '70's, a recognised nadir of pop and jazz, where some misguided enthusiast transcribed Bix's solos and played them on a moog, with trumpet {not cornet} obbligato. It was dreadful.

    I have to agree on that.
    That rates right up there with "Doc Goes Disco"

    I think it's only fair that someone defend the trumpet player in this recording, Al Korvin. Agreed, it is horrible, but pretty much typical of a lot of the "Mickey Mouse" music of the early to mid 60's both here and in Europe. Actually Al (Corvini) Korvin was a very good trumpet player who appeared a lot on Italian television as a member of various orchestras. I remember hearing him play the them from "Concierto de Aranjuez" and I enjoyed it so much I bought the 45 (this was in 1968 when I was studying in Italy). I still have it somewhere. A little scratchy but still a very good performance. He was perhapsROFL trying to cash in on the success of the novelty recordings by Italian trumpeter Nini ('Il Silenzio') Rosso, probably unsuccessfully. Always thought the best trumpet player in Italy at that time was Michele Lacerenza who did all those Sergio Leone sound tracks.
    C'mon, guys, give poor Al a break; after all, he only recorded it - he didn't post it! ROFL
