Bobby Hackett

5 posts in this topic

Bobby Hackett is world famous as the trumpeter on Glenn Miller's "String of Pearls" from 1941, and then a series of mood music recordings produced and conducted by actor and jazz fan Jackie Gleason. The popularity allowed him to record under his own name for Capitol Records. Last night Jazz From Blue Lake featured Hackett's music in the first part of each hour. "Jazz From Blue Lake" is found here www.bluelake.org/ondemand under "Programs."

His stature is akin to a demigod here in Rhode Island.

"Coast Concert"  and this one, "Jazz Ultimate"  (both with Jack Teagarden) are two of the best illustrations of what we now seem to call Dixieland, but they're really just Real Jazz by anyone's description...

Hello Itforsenior: Blue Lake's on-demand page keeps content for a day then turns over. I'm on every weeknight, 10 p.m. - 3 a.m. eastern, which streams live from www.bluelake.org/radio . Because that's too late for many, we make the program available the next day during the day. But it is replaced each day by the next program. Our "Retrospective" features are heard at the start of each hour. So, if you go to www.bluelake.org/ondemand and look at "Jazz From Blue Lake" under "Programs," you'll hear last night's broadcast featuring the music of former Detroit vocalist Carla Cook.
