New Music from Miss Bix, on Blue Heart Records
An adult contemporary fix from Miss Bix, featuring Leslie Letven
By: Blue Heart Records
Miss Bix (Leslie Letven Bixler) is a seasoned writer and producer, having created music for her entire adulthood, including smooth jazz, rock and pop, then naturally transitioning to children's music after becoming a mother. More recent explorations into the depths of the blues have sparked an intense, passion-driven musical trajectory, with more blues music currently in development.
Bittersweet, a timeless collection of sophisticated and sensuous music performed by some of the jazz world's finest players, reflects one of the many diverse styles of Miss Bix; her pensive mode. Co-written with her partner and muse, Bill Bixler (also on saxophone), this beautiful collection features the genius of Russell Ferrante, keyboardist and founding member of the Yellow Jackets; and Grammy nominee Lou Pardini (Chicago) on keyboards and background vocals. World-renowned bassist Brian Bromberg guests on the time-honored title track. Bittersweet will haunt you long after you have played it with its dreamy rhythmic cadence and lyrics that speak to the bittersweet nature of love and loss and loving again. "I can't count how many times I've been asked to make this music available digitally, or how many emails I've received over the years about the song, "Bittersweet,"
For Blue Heart Records president Sallie Bengtson, it is an overdue musical offering. "When I first met Leslie and learned about her musical catalog, I knew right away that she would benefit from digital distribution of her earlier work. By tying together her maiden name (Letven) with her married name (Bixler) and releasing it all under her new 'Miss Bix' moniker, it creates an opportunity for her audiences to cross-pollinate and enjoy all of the musical treasures she has to offer."
Blue Heart Records, established in January 2020, is a joint venture between Nola Blue Records and Blind Raccoon, combining the strengths of each entity into a dynamic new promotion and distribution services bundle.
