Not only does this superior double-LP set contain all of cornetist Bix Beiderbecke's recordings with the Wolverines in 1924 (much of which is classic), but it features him with the Sioux City Six and his Rhythm Jugglers (highlighted by the original version of "Davenport Blues"), the two titles cut by the Wolverines after Beiderbecke departed (with Jimmy McPartland in his spot), and seven performances by the Bucktown Five in 1924 (the recording debut of cornetist Muggsy Spanier). Collectors of '20s jazz should be familiar with most of this music, especially the Wolverines sides. Bix Beiderbecke, although only 21 years old at the time, already demonstrated the lyricism, inventiveness, and beautiful tone that one associates with him.
