      Hello Jeffrey,

      All takes of these tunes are the same, as far as I know. Your date
      for "Wringin' and Twistin'" is correct; "In A Mist" was recorded on

      Bix seems to have made no other solo piano records, but he plays piano
      on "Wringin' and Twistin'," and "For No Reason At All In C" (5-13-27).
      Three of his solo piano compositions were later recorded by Jess
      Stacey: "Flashes," "In the Dark" (both 1935), and "Candlelights" (1939).
