COMENTARIO
Bix Beiderbecke fue el primer gran músico blanco de jazz. Objeto de culto y nostalgia, su figura se ha proyectado a la logrado de la historia del jazz, como paradigma de creatividad, inventiva y pureza artística. Expresó su música a través de la corneta, instrumento con el que dejó grabados instantes de gran belleza, sorprendentes aun después de tantos años y de tantas audiciones. Su música, intemporal, solo lo logran los grandes artistas.

Bix Beiderbecke siempre tuvo una desazón interior que le conduciría a la autodestrucción y a la muerte prematura. Siempre estaba buscando algo que sin embargo ya estaba presente en su música y que sobresalía por encima del conformismo mediocre de la mayoría de sus acompañantes, aunque con lógicas y reconfortantes excepciones.

Bix Beiderbecke murió con tan sólo 28 años pero ya dejó grabada y escrita música suficiente para que pasara a la historia como el mejor jazzman blanco de todos los tiempos.
