Movie Reviews

Well done documentary on the life of Bix Beiderbecke
C. Beiderbecke | Moline, IL USA | 02/24/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Bridget Berman did a very good job in assembling and editing this documentary film on the life and career of Leon Bix Beiderbecke, one of the seminal figures of early jazz. The story is riveting and ultimately very sad, as his life is snuffed out at the age of 28.
Told with stills and interviews, Berman gets most of it right.
A must own for true Bixophiles, and nice to have it on DVD as well."
Ain't none of them played like him yet....

"One of the best bios available. The subject is immortal and the quality and care that went into the making of this video is incredible. Get it while it's still available - a must have for any fan of jazz and any fan of jazz is a fan of Mr. Beiderbecke."

"He led the way for other great trumpet players. Sweets Edison. Harry James, Ferguson, Al Hirt, Randy Brooks and many others."
