Bobby Hackett
Live At Roosevelt Grill Vol.3
Chiaroscuro Records
Cat No:
Price £11.99
Bobby Hackett was a magnificent trumpet and cornet player, one of the finest artists in the vintage tradition. His mellow tone offered a contrast to the brasher Dixieland-oriented sound and his impressive résumé includes such luminaries as Joe Marsala, Eddie Condon, Horace Heidt, Glenn Miller’s Orchestra, Jackie Gleason, Benny Goodman, Tony Bennett, Vic Dickenson, Jim Cullum and Dizzy Gillespie. In 1977, the year following Hackett's death at the age of 61, Hank O’Neal's Chiaroscuro label released a series of recordings from Hackett’s triumphant engagement at the Roosevelt Grill in New York and this splendid reissue captures some truly memorable swinging performances.
