Scobey's Frisco Favorites Featuring Clancy Hayes
Clint Hunter | 09/09/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Anytime a group like Bob Scobey on trumpet, Jack Buck on trombone, and Clancy Hayes on banjo and vocals gets together you just know that fans of Dixieland jaazz are in for a treat. When you add the smooth and innovative improvisations of clarinetist Bill Napier as featured on cuts 5 - 18, it's hard to imagine a better combination of creativity and hard driving Dixieland. This is certainly evident on cut 5, Battle Hymn of the Republic, which gets the latter part of the album off to a flying start. Included on the disc are eighteen selections of all time favorite blues and Dixieland numbers. The sound on cuts 1 - 4 is of somewhat lower quality than that on the balance of the disc. This, however, does nothing to detract from the overall quality and enjoyment of the recording. If you like great Dixieland jazz, this is a disc you should seriously consider adding to your collection."
A good collection of Scobey's best
Dr. Robert Hackler | Orlando, Fl. USA | 02/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you're looking for a collection of some of Bob Scobey standards, this is a good place to start. Featured are some of the tunes most identified with the Frisco Band, "Silver Dollar", "Ace in the Hole", and two of my favorites--"Peoria" and "Someday Sweetheart" (Louie Armstrong composition). On all of these Clancy Hayes does a tremendous job and earns recognition as one of the best vocalists of all time. No less than Bing Crosby salutes him. I had occasion to meet both Bob and Clancy when I was in Chicago and recommend this CD highly."
