Sioux City Six
Sioux City SixRight after quitting the Wolverines to join Jean GoldketteBix and three other members of the Wolverines teamed up with Frankie Trumbauer and Miff Mole of the Jean Goldkette Orchestra to record this session.

This was the first of many sessions that Trumbauer and Beiderbecke would record together. The name Sioux City Six was a joke on Bix; he had intended the record be called the Davenport Six, after his hometown in Iowa, but as a practical joke Miff Mole told the recording engineer to call the band the Sioux City Six after Beiderbecke had left the studio. Sioux City is on the opposite side of Iowa.

Frankie Trumbauer C-Melody Saxophone was a pioneering website during the "Information wants to be Free" era of the 1990s. In that spirit we are recovering the lost data from the now defunct site and sharing it with you.
Most of the music in the archive is in the form of MP3s hosted on or the French servers of where this music is all in the public domain.
Files unavailable from those sources we host ourselves. They were made from original 78 RPM records in the hands of private collectors in the 1990s who contributed to the original They were hosted as .ra files originally and we have converted them into the more modern MP3 format. They are of inferior quality to what is available commercially and are intended for reference purposes only. In some cases a Real Audio (.ra) file from will download. Don't be scared! Those files will play in many music programs, but not Windows Media Player.
