Product Description

Product Description

Another jazz treat to follow on from Billy Butterfield (RTR 4203): a unique survey of the very best of Bobby Hackett, described as "the most beautiful horn in the world" Comparing top trumpeters, Louis Armstrong once declared that Bobby Hackett (1915-1976) had "more ingredients". This generous Retrospective of the 27 finest tracks from his vintage years of 1938 to 1960 is an unrivalled demonstration of all those glorious 'ingredients': "a broad generous tone with a depth to the sound celebrating its cornet origins, long tones decorated with a flirtatious vibrato, effortless mobility through the principal range of his instrument, and flawless elegance of expression" (to quote another trumpeter, Digby Fairweather). The sequence covers a huge range of styles, going from when he first burst upon the jazz scene in the late 30s to immortal tracks from the 40s and 50s. There are six memorable collaborations with Jack Teagarden, while superb tracks with Frank Sinatra and Lee Wiley show his sensitivity as an accompanist. His lighter side is not ignored, with his celebrated Jackie Gleason sessions being represented, and even a final Hawaiian farewell!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Musicians' Musician 22 Oct 2012
The CDs in the 'Retrospective' series are such a joy and provide so much entertainment, as well as providing a solid introduction to the music of the period. This latest one is of recordings made between 1938 and 1960 by the brilliant trumpet-player Bobby Hackett, with several combinations of musicians, big band or singers, most of them household names too.

If you already appreciate melodic jazz, this is for you. If you want to introduce someone else to jazz you could do a lot worse than start with this CD. It's full of lovely tunes, it's well-crafted and it's also worth remembering that other jazz musicians rate him very highly indeed.

The recording is up to the usual high Nimbus standard and I'm very glad to have it in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real treat for Bobby Hackett fans... 20 Oct 2012
This builds upon the good work of the earlier CD collection and covers the period 1938 to 1960. Excellent quality sound and differing line ups provides for a musical treat. As a long time fan of this label I am pleased that they take time over each issue to ensure the best of sound and rear h the liner notes fully. At one time there was very little available of Bobby Hackett and now we have 2 CDs from Retrospective. The line upof early bands, big jazz names, vocalists and the sweet orchestra of Jackie Gleason are some of the highlights on offer. Pricewise these are good value and as nostalgia collections they are up there with the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE GOLDEN TRUMPETERS 6 Sep 2013
By Barry McCanna TOP 100 REVIEWER
Bobby Hackett started on guitar before switching to cornet, and later to trumpet. He was roped in by Benny Goodman to recreate Bix's solo on "I'm Coming Virginia" at the 1938 Carnegie Hall Concert (the success of which saw him associated thereafter with that luminary, rather than his true idol Louis Armstrong). In his informative liner note Digby Fairweather (no slouch on the trumpet himself) reports that it was Louis' response, when asked why he preferred Hackett to Billy Butterfield, that the former had more ingredients.

Hence the title of this compilation, which presents Bobby in a variety of settings between 1938 and 1960, including the afore-mentioned solo with Benny Goodman (the acoustic of which reflects the difficulties encountered in recording at that venue). There's one apiece with Eddie Condon & his Windy City Seven (1938), Miff Mole & his Nicksieland Band (1944), Louis Armstrong's 1947 Town Hall Concert, Axel Stordahl & his Orchestra with a Sinatra vocal (1947), Joe Bushkin & his Swinging Strings with a Lee Wiley vocal (1950), Jackie Gleason & orchestra (1954), and paired with Jack Teagarden (1957).

Alternating with that variety of styles are a number of recordings made under his own leadership, including three 1957 recordings by a group that used an unusual instrumentation and Dick Carey's arrangements to modernise Dixieland tunes. Bobby Hackett's particular trademarks were a lyrical style and subtlety of improvisation, and by the fifties his already mellow tone had become lustrous. All of those facets of his playing are in evidence in this superb compilation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bobby Dazzler! 30 Oct 2012
By Meals M
It seems such a shame that we hear of Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman all the time, but know nothing of the work of the great musician and trumpeter Bobby Hackett. Well, Nimbus, with their Restrospective range, are putting this right. All his major hits from 1938-1960 are here in one place. From 'Embraceable You' to 'Aloha Oe'. As soon as the first strains of the music came out from my speakers I was pleased to have found another melodic jazz hero to champion. A good price and a great listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bobby Hacktt - More Ingredients 15 Oct 2012
Bobby Hackett is a name that I was not too familiar with nor could I even put a face to. I was also unsure if he was a musician, arranger, or a bandleader. On this CD he appears to be all three.
Bobby Hackett was born in Providence, Rhode Island on 31st January 1915. He made his name as a follower of the legendary cornet player Bix Beiderbecke: Benny Goodman hired him to recreate Bix's famous I'm Coming Virginia solo at his (Goodman's) 1938 Carnegie Hall concert (Track 2).
After some dental surgery, it became difficult for him to play the trumpet or cornet but he did manage some short solos.
This Retrospective CD from Nimbus records entitled Bobby Hackett More Ingredients - His 27 Finest 1938-1960 exposes the full range of Bobby's talent. Track 1 Embraceable You, a 1939 recording, was Bobby's signature tune. On Track 3 he plays guitar with Eddie Condon and his Windy City Seven, Ja-Da. With Miff Mole and his Nicksieland Band he plays trombone on Track 7 playing I Must Have That Man. He joins Louis Armstrong and his All-Stars as musical directing and playing the cornet on Track 9 Ain't Misbehavin'. He also accompanies Frank Sinatra singing I've Got a Crush on You (Track 10) with Axel Stardahl and Orchestra.
This CD is an absolute delight and well worth purchasing whether you're a Jazz fan or Big Band fan; as both are well catered for on this CD.
