The interviews make this the closest we'll ever get to Bix.
I am very familiar with the music of Bix and have read biographies of him. Thanks to the interviews with famous and those I never heard of I got to learn a lot more about Bix than I ever thought possible. I am very grateful to Brigitte Berman and her team for rounding up so many who were able to talk about their experiences with Bix. I have the DVD version from Playboy. I wish close captioning were available as some of the interviewees are difficult to understand. There are no extras (other than the ability to come in at different portions of the film) but the sound track is almost all Bix playing his cornet in good quality transfers from a collector's original 78s. It's a super way to experience his sound, especially for the first time. All in all, a wonderful effort. BIX LIVES.
