Editorial Reviews

The two instrumentals from the first session, "At The Jazz Band Ball" and "That Da Da Strain", are typical Dixieland fare with interesting solos, especially from Pee Wee Russell. The other two sides "You, You And Especially You" and "If Dreams Come True" are more commercially designed and have vocals by Lola Bard. The live version of "At The Jazz Band Ball" taken from a 'Saturday Night Swing Club' broadcast, provides an interesting comparison with the one from the studio recording session and the solos are rather different, as one might expect from a Jazz group. "Blue And Disillusioned" with a nice vocal from Linda Keene, is the attempt for commercial success from the second session with two sides, "Ghost Of A Chance" and "Poor Butterfly" designed to show off Hackett's playing. The final side "Doin' The New Lowdown" is more of a group jazz vehicle with good solos. Even as early as 1938, he had acquired a reputation for his ability to enhance the performance, not only by his discrete embellishments behind the vocal but his sympathetic solos as well. This dual ability is beautifully illustrated on Maxine Sullivan's "Night And Day". There are two outstanding Hackett performances on the standards "Ain't Misbehavin'" and "Embraceable You". Two sides with Hackett as leader have vocals and were obviously intended to strike a more commercial note but the two instrumentals "Clarinet Marmalade" and "Singing The Blues", show Hackett at his best especially in his tribute to Bix Beiderbecke on the second of these.... Not that he recreates either the style or the sound of Bix but the flavour is certainly present.

Some thirty years ago,I owned some of original Vocalion 78s featured on this CD.This is a great album.Hackett's band was short lived lasting just a few months before it disbanded due to Hackett missing an important date that could have determined the success of his band.This was in 1939.I had a friend here in North Bend,Oregon who knew him personally-they grew up together in Providence,Rhode Island back in the '30s.He was a drummer and he and Hackett had worked together at the Theatrical Club in Boston before moving to New York City in the late '30s.His name was Nick Pelico and he provided me with some of the personnel on the 78s when I had them.I highly recommend this CD for Dixieland fans and swing band fans alike.

A collection of bad air-checks of some Broadcasts of a commercial band Bobby was working in. Hardly any solo's.
For any lover of Bobby Hacket - don't waste your money. Buy his Jazz at the Roosevelt Grill instead. Bobby working with a great group at his best - which is as good as it gets
