My Ohio Home – Paul Whiteman and his orchestra with Bix Beiderbecke


My Ohio Home – Paul Whiteman and his orchestra with Bix Beiderbecke.
This is the only known footage of Bix playing the cornet. A Fox Movietone Newsreel for the week of May 18, 1928, shows Paul Whiteman tearing up his old contract with Victor on the stroke of midnight. Paul now has a new contract with Columbia and leads his orchestra playing My Ohio Home. At one point, during a chorus by the brass section, we see Bix standing up and playing his part on the cornet. There are two transfers, one normal and a second one with somewhat more of a close-up.
