About the album

First release in 2003.
At its peak around 1928/28 the Jean Goldkette Orchestra was the finest white jazz orchestra of its time. It featured advanced and groundbreaking arrangements by Bill Challis and Don Murray, plus a raft of top soloists such as the immortal Bix Beiderbecke, Bill Rank and Steve Brown whilst the great Joe Venuti and Eddie Lang were added for several of its recordings. This CD contains all the significant records made whilst Bix was with the organisation, including such classic sides as 'Clementine' and 'My Pretty Girl'.
10th March 2003 saw the century of the birth of Bix Beiderbecke and this CD celebrates that anniversary in fine style. John R.T. Davies made the transfers and if that is not sufficient guarantee of quality, the linernotes are by Bix's biographer Richard M. (Dick) Sudhalter. Containing a generous 25 tracks, this CD is an essential buy for anyone interested in jazz history and some great music.

"..an excellent package... transfers crips and bright. All in all a first class production"
