Davenport Blues

Tom Collier & Dan Dean
Bix Beiderbecke


I recorded Bix Beiderbecke's Davenport Blues with Ry Cooder for his 1978 Warner Brothers "Jazz" album. A year later, having relocated from Los Angeles to Seattle, I began performing a similar arrangement of the song with bassist Dan Dean although, for whatever reason, we stopped playing it after a few weeks. One live recording of Davenport Blues has survived - performed on October 12th 1979 at the original Jazz Alley in the University District of Seattle.
