JeruJazz records presents "Chris Madsen Trio Plays Bix Beiderbecke". Featuring new interpretations of arrangements played by Bix Beiderbecke in the late 1920's, this recording is the group's debut. Chris Madsen, tenor saxophone. The Chris Madsen Trio ably rectifies this situation with their new album, which features several 1920s Beiderbecke performance vehicles (notably I’m Coming Home Virginia ), as well as his endurable original compositions. Although this recording is an impressive homage to the compositions and repertoire of Bix, the trio uncannily evokes the Commodore small group records of Lester Young, with each musician respectively playing the role of Young, Freddie Green, and Walter Page (unlike Green, who was perpetually the masterful accompanist, Effland solos quite a bit).

Saturday was the 109th birthday of Iowa trumpeter Bix Beiderbecke, one of the greatest and most tortured of jazz's early phenoms-he died in 1931, at age 28, after suffering from alcoholism for years. Though no horn man from that era will ever escape the shadow of Louis Armstrong, Beiderbecke was a great player and brought a wonderfully lyrical, gentle quality to traditional jazz improvisation.
