I've never read anything that even suggested that Bix <em>recorded</em> with Jimmy Rodgers. Rodgers recorded "Blue Yodel #9" with Louis Armstrong, but Bix?

I think this auction outfit is misinformed or misinforming.

Wouldn't that have been an interesting session, though, possibly surpassing "Cradle of Love?"

Surely everyone knows that the Jimmie Rogers sides are Bix cleverly disguising his playing to sound exactly like Louis.

Wow! That Bix is more of a genius than we thought!

Is that him singin' "Heebie Jeebies" with the Hot Five, too?

...all in the forum have heard the fine "Snake Rag" version of Bix playing alongside King Oliver. This should be in the Bixography collection.

Next you'll be telling me he had a Hollywood dinner date with Lil Harbin right after the "Blue Yodel" session.
