Bix Beiderbecke

Even in the hands of white composers it involuntarily reflects the half-forgotten suffering of the negro. Jazz has both white and black elements, and each in some respects has influenced the other. It's recent phase seems to throw the light of the white race's sophistication upon the anguish of the black.More Bix Beiderbecke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
