Time Out says

A documentary in which the legendary jazz cornettist Bix Beiderbecke, who blew his one chance to get on film (The King of Jazz) through his ultimately fatal alcoholism, is brought to life with interviews and well-chosen records though he died over fifty years ago. Overlong towards the end but beautiful to look at, the pastel tones on the new material blending with black-and-white archive still and movie footage, which instead of distancing the music even further places it vivdly in its period.
