Statewide: Remembering jazz pioneer Bix Beiderbecke
Leon "Bix" Beiderbecke died in 1931. He was only 28 years old. Yet, his musical influence is still felt today. And in his hometown of Davenport, his name remains prominent. There is a jazz festival, road race and a museum.
We talk with the director about why some view Beiderbecke as one of the greats, yet he remains largely unknown today. (Interview begins at 17:30).
