    The Bix Beiderbeck Memorial Jazz Festival, or Bix Fest, is typically held each summer in his hometown of Davenport, Iowa. He is buried in a beautiful cemetery on Eastern Ave. across the street from a former orphanage there. After all the unspeakable restrictions are lifted in America, make a plan to attend the Fest. It is world class and a big deal in Dixieland & traditional jazz circles, and a tremendous amount of fun. Oh, and bring sunscreen, the summer sun in Iowa can be brutal. Me? I mixed sound on the blues stage in front of the Davenport Public Library for a few years, so I may be somewhat biased.

    "Jazz" was the first Ry Cooder I owned, based on a rave review in some magazine I subscribed to. I was still into Jethro Tull and Frank Zappa at the time so I was a little baffled. My dad liked some of the tunes which he recognized.
