The Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Society is sponsoring a jazz cruise on Carnival
Cruise Lines from New Orleans November 16-23 in honor of Bix’s 100 birthday.
There are stops at Montego Bay, Grand Cayman and Cozumel.  Tom Pletcher’s
Bix Centennial Band performs  plus 3 shipboard bands & orchestras and an
on-board Jazz Club.  There will be Bix seminars led by guest Jazz Historians
Albert Haim, Phil Pospychala and Rich Johnson.  Prices start at $899, double
occupancy, for seven nights with optional stay two nights in New Orleans.
Call Blue Horizon travel at 800-939-4334 or call the Jazz Society of
Pensacola at 850-433-8382 for a cruise brochure..  In conversation with Rich
Johnson, I learn that the Bix Society has reserved a block of staterooms for
his event as well as rooms at the Iberville Suites in the French Quarter for
November 14-16. It’s important, if you plan to go, to reserve early to
assure you get the staterooms which have been reserved for the Bix Society
for the Jazz Cruise.
