Evidently, this was from Mike Durham's Whitley Bay Classic Jazz Party https://www.facebook.com/whitleybayjazzfest/http://www.whitleybayjazzfest.org/
which also featured other Bix-relevant perfomances including a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the ODJB's first recordings:

I was there and there were a number of Bix related performances in sets dedicated to Fred Elizalde, the young Benny Goodman and the ODJB. Performers included Andy Schumm, Josh Duffee, Mike Davis, Jim Fryer and David Boeddinhaus from the US, as well as another 25 musicians from Europe and the UK.
