Bix Restored, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
The second volume of Bix Restored, Sunbeam's massive effort to gather together every note that the legendary Bix Beiderbecke ever blew on record, takes up where Vol. 1 left off, right in the middle of the prime Beiderbecke sessions with Frankie Trumbauer. The first disc of the three-CD set shuttles between the remaining Trumbauer sides of 1927, famously buoyant sessions by Beiderbecke and his gang, and an interlude with the Willard Robison group, Tram, and a period vocal quintet. The vast bulk of the remaining two discs is taken up by Beiderbecke's records with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra, with a few side trips under Trumbauer's name. That's quite a prolific stretch ...

All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
The second volume of Bix Restored, Sunbeam's massive effort to gather together every note that the legendary Bix Beiderbecke ever blew on record, takes up where Vol. 1 left off, right in the middle of the prime Beiderbecke sessions with Frankie Trumbauer. The first disc of the three-CD set shuttles between the remaining Trumbauer sides of 1927, famously buoyant sessions by Beiderbecke and his gang, and an interlude with the Willard Robison group, Tram, and a period vocal quintet. The vast bulk of the remaining two discs is taken up by Beiderbecke's records with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra, with a few side trips under Trumbauer's name. That's quite a prolific stretch of recording over a five-month period by the standards of any era. Yet true to the legend, each and every solo by Beiderbecke, be it a single chorus, an intro, or taking turns in bursts with his colleagues, is an exquisitely turned, perfectly poised etching in sound, absolutely a part of its time and also speaking to the future. His solos on the Whiteman recordings often come as crisp, cocky bursts of sass; at other times, he is just part of the trumpet section playing straight off the page. This box set will also serve as a detailed sampling as to how far afield the huge Whiteman orchestra would go to gather an audience, ranging from genuinely hot jazz to perky/sentimental period pops and some of the most eccentric classical/pop hybrids -- dig the Wagner! -- ever put on wax. The transfers by John R.T. Davies and Michael Kieffer are remarkably honest, leaving in the innate surface noise and distortion caused by needle wear yet reproducing a satisfying musical image of the original 78s. Those with access to original pressings will notice a small lack of presence, but in comparison to the heavily processed, compressed transfers of the first seven tracks by Columbia on Singin' the Blues, the Sunbeam set is way is better by far.
