AllMusic Review by

Although his recording career was brief and only lasted six years, cut short by his drinking problems and his death at the age of 28 in 1930, cornetist Bix Beiderbecke still remains one of the giants of the early jazz years. This two-disc, 50-track set does a good job spanning his career, from his first recording in 1924 with the Wolverine Orchestra, through to his final session with Hoagy Carmichael in 1930.
