An outstanding collection of jazz all stars pay their respects to a great master, Bix Beiderbecke, on the one-hundredth anniversary of his birth on March 10, 1903, by faithfully presenting his immortal solos and leads in a new and creative setting, scored variously for a variety of instruments from Dick Hyman«s solo piano, to 3 cornets, 3 C-melody saxes, 3 clarinets, a brass choir, and a brass and woodwind group. They help answer the question as to why Bix still retains the power to inspire us 72 years after his death.
