In loving tribute to Bix - who played so beautifully and died way too young. Davenport Blues was Bix Beiderbecke's first composition to have been recorded. The historic event took place in the Gennett Recording Studios of the Starr Piano Company, in Richmond, Indiana, on January 26, 1925.

The musicians in the group - Bix Beiderbecke and His Rhythm Jugglers - were: Bix (cornet), Don Murray (clarinet), Tommy Dorsey (trombone), Paul Mertz (piano), Tommy Gargano (drums), and Howdy Quicksell (banjo)

I noticed here on Daily Motion you used Bix's original recording but over on youtube you mentioned you couldn't or were unable to with your Davenport Blues video. Why? Also great video!
