Description

Bobby Hackett was admired by Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis for his unique improvisation and inventive chord progressions, which are found in abundance on this live club session. Hackett displays great harmonic command on the cornet, as well as a sense of humor. The listener can feel the warmth, relaxed atmosphere and rising intensity of this intimate session. Sir Charles Thompson's straight-ahead piano accompaniment is perfectly suited to Bobby Hackett's subtle, laid-back style. This 62 min. CD (12 numbers) was originally released as a double LP on the obscure Honeydew label. The material consists of popular tunes, such as "I Left My Heart In San Francisco", and jazz standards, including many Ellington/Strayhorn compositions.
