"Bix Beiderbecke and George Gershwin were musical geniuses. Both admired and greatly benefitted from hearing the works of the early 20th century European impressionist composers...Whole tones, the keystone of impressionism, gave jazz a very important ingredient which innovators like Bix and George used to great advantage."
