In the Dark

A while ago I posted an item about Bix Beiderbecke during which I mentioned that, as well as being a star trumpeter,  he had also written a suite of four pieces for solo piano. I just found out that about a month ago somebody posted this lovely version of one of them on Youtube. It’s called – you guessed it – In the Dark.

This version is by Dick Hyman, and I think it’s lovely. This is my official theme tune from now on!

    Very nice piece .. some of the images are quite amusing, referring to him as a ‘coronet’ player — and the caricature of Paul Whiteman!!

    I think a kinder heart would not have mentioned that.
