CD Reviews

World's all time greatest trumpet player bar none!
Randal Greenwood | Hugoton, KS USA | 09/22/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have waited none too patiently for the release of the Honey in the Horn sound, the smooth jazz magic of the King, Al Hirt. I have had only my original lps to keep me through this long wait lovingly transferred to cassette tape. Now and then a cd with a greatest hits flavor would give me a taste, but not the full magic of those early sixty's smooth as honey sounds I so longed for. Now my wait is over! If you love soft, romantic jazz that will drift you away from your cares, If you want to feel rich and above all worries then you must have Al Hirt's Honey in the horn sounds. Al does great dixieland too, but I have always loved his smooth, lilting trumpet solos soaring over beautiful orchestras and choirs instead. The two sounds are totally different so pick your albums carefully. For the romantic there is only the one King! If Al was before your time (the sixties or you somehow missed his magic music, then do yourself a favor and get this CD. I'd give it a hundred if they would allow it!"
Outstanding Al Hirt Combo Albums on Single CD
Eric Rustin ( | Atlanta | 11/09/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Recently released, this single CD showcases Al's 1963 best-selling album "Honey in the Horn" with his 1965 hit album "That Honey Horn Sound". The combo "two great albums on one compact disc", includes such lyrical pieces as "Fly Me to the Moon" and "You Took Advantage of Me" as well as the trumpet king's signature hits: "Java", "Fancy Pants", "Alley Cat", and "Butterball". The technical mastery is great, missing only the nostalgic pop and crackle of the original RCA LP's. With excellent audio quality, you can't miss savoring that 1960's "Honey in the Horn" sound with this soon-to-be two-album combo classic."
