Author investigates the mysterious life of Bix Beiderbecke

Brendan Wolfe interviewed dozens of historians and Bix music fans in search of the real man behind the jazz. "Finding Bix: The Life and Afterlife of a Jazz Legend" uncovers diverse, and at times, opposing views regarding Leon Bix Beiderbecke as a person - not just a musician. A main truth running through the book is that Bix was a mystery. While contradictions remain as to who he really was, one bottom line emerges: His musical genius.
