CD Reviews

Dixie Swings!
lentnej | Oneonta, NY USA | 01/11/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a different type of dixie than you'll get from other New Orleans based artists of the time. The liner notes describe it as Dixie Swing and that is an apt description. Listen to the notes pour out of Al's horn and the way the music follows the typical Dixieland band progression. The style though has just as much in common with swing and even bebop. This album jumps and once you listen to it a few times you'll want to hear more of Al Hirt."

"This is from Al's best period for Dixieland Jazz. 1963 his group
was at it's height and it has a lot of dazzling trumpet playing and better audio quality than the 50's records."
A must have for Hirt fans

"Where was this group of recordings hiding for so many years? I bought this when it first came out several years back. It was so much fun hearing Al again in his prime on a whole new set of material - including some songs I didn't know he had recorded.I've played for almost 45 years now and have yet to hear a trumpet player as good and as much fun as Jumbo.Buy this CD. Some of the arrangements are short, but still worth every penny of the cost."
