Does it remind you of Bix's solo in Tiger Rag?

One of the recordings in the last installment of the "Playlist"

https://78records.wordpress.com/2017/04 ... 1925-1928/

is WILLIAMSON’S BEALE STREET FROLIC ORCHESTRA: Scandinavian Stomp. Listen to Charley Williamson's cornet solo at 1:20. It reminds me of parts of Bix's longer solo in the Wolverine's Tiger Rag. Listen to Bix's solo beginning at 1:00:

The Charley Williamson solo on "Scandinavian Stomp" is good (though the high point of the record is the bass sax solo near the end) and has bits of Bix, but the two didn't sound that much alike to me.

A better-sounding link for Bix's "Tiger Rag": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7eAJal6ntY

To me, this one has a lot in common with "Copenhagen." It's pretty much a rip-off in basic musical structure, even to the placement of the solos, although in style it is a very different sort of jazz from anything Bix would have played.

Not Tiger Rag but Copenhagen is the "inspiration" for Scandinavian Stomp.

Even the choice of the title, "Scandinavian Stomp," gives it away!
