Leon Bismark “Bix” Beiderbecke (1903-1931)
Davenport Iowa born, Bix was a cornetist who had a special gift for improvisation and helped to invent the jazz ballad style. As all creative types, he was a bit of a troublemaker and left this life as one. On the night of his death he woke up his neighbors playing the piano and shouting hysterically. While the official cause of his collapse is known as lobar pneumonia, it is thought to have been brought about by his alcoholism. Bix was 28.

There Ain't No Sweet Man Worth The Salt Of My Tears, 1928, Paul Whiteman and his Rhythm Boys (Harry Barris, Al Rinker and Bing Crosby) camping it up with Bix doing his usual stellar cornet work. This is lots of fun.

Bix Beiderbecke grew up in Davenport listening to Louis Armstrong. As a young man, he moved to Chicago and became an innovative and influential jazz cornetist. He died at 28, dogged by personal demons of fame and alcohol.
