What's the sound of a girl saying yes? Guitarist-bandleader Eddie Condon once said it was Bix Beiderbecke's cornet tone. In less poetic terms, his horn playing was definitely one of the most significant contributions to early jazz. These New York sessions recorded by various ensembles between 1927 and 1930 dip into the middle and late periods of Bix's short life (1903-1931). Due to personal problems, he was in and out of some successful dance bands during this period. But WA-DA-DA indicates that Bix was in demand in the studio, where commitment meant just one day at a time, all along the way. With supporting players and singers including Bing Crosby, Hoagy Carmichael, Benny Goodman, the Dorseys, and his occasional partner, Frankie Trumbauer on C-melody saxophone, Bix and company swing joyously through mostly uptempo numbers. "Since My Best Girl Turned Me Down" shows Bix at his strutting yet coolly restrained best. For a sense of the range of his dynamics, something that separated him from most of his contemporaries, listen to his statement of the opening melody on the languid "Deep Harlem"--it's 30 seconds of true beauty.

This double-CD from French RCA in their Jazz Tribune series (a reissue of an earlier double-LP) gives one a good overview of cornetist Bix Beiderbecke's Victor recordings. More serious collectors will want to acquire this music as part of a more complete series (since all of his solos are significant), while beginning collectors are advised to pick up his Columbia reissue CDs (which feature Beiderbecke in smaller groups) first. The 36 performances on this two-fer mostly focus on his sideman's appearances with the large dance orchestras of Jean Goldkette and Paul Whiteman during 1926-28, although there is one 1924 track ("I Didn't Know") with Goldkette, and a few later sessions from 1930. Highlights include "Clementine," "San," "There Ain't No Sweet Man," "From Monday On," and "You Took Advantage of Me." ~ Scott Yanow
