He co-wrote Bix: Man And Legend, which was nominated for a National Book Award, and in 1983 won a Grammy for his liner notes for Bunny Berigan: Giants Of Jazz. On this 1992 episode of Piano Jazz, Sudhalter remembers Bix Beiderbecke and joins Marian McPartland for a duet version of "Chasing Shadows."
