Excellent and informative article. Those who claim that the late Richard Sudhalter stole the Bix biography from Evans may learn something.

New Paul Whiteman Orch. Dick Sudhalter + John R.T.Davies + Harry Gold - Bix Memory 1974 excerpt
Thanks for this post, Albert...it sparked a memory. Dick Sudhalter and Harold Lieberman led a Whiteman tribute at Waterloo Village in NJ on 24 June 1984. Many of the arrangements were not recorded by Whiteman.

Bill Challis and Spiegle Willcox were in the audience. Me too! Notable work by Vince Giordano, and by Bob Reitmeier, who played Trumbauer's parts. Vocals by The Manhattan Rhythm Kings. A few tracks at the link below. Please pardon the awful sound quality; my shoebox cassette mic picked up only a portion of the band.
