BACKSTAGE WITH BOBBY HACKETT MILWAUKEE 1951
Jasmine Records has issued a previously unknown 1951 Bobby Hackett nightclub session from Milwaukee that belongs in any Hackett fan's collection. The bonus is an appearance of the great trombonist Vic Dickenson to join Hackett's trumpet in the sextet. The tunes range from Dixie standards to 'I'm Getting Sentimental Over You,' with Hackett, Dickenson and clarinettist Gene Sedric being featured on individual tunes. Because it's live, the recording quality and introductions are not the best. Nonetheless, it's a great discovery and will please most Hackett fans immensely.
