Album Review

Stephen Cook [allmusic.com]

While jazz purists no doubt will ignore it as just easy listening fodder, Bobby Hackett's That Midnight Touch contains some of the most beautiful and pure playing of the trumpeter's career. One could ask for more substantial string arrangements than Lew Davies' blanket-of-blue backdrop, but that becomes negligible in the face of Hackett's amazingly cogent and easeful statements on every track here. Armed with near perfect intonation and the most golden and shimmering of tones, Hackett glides through a program mixed with well-known standards and rare delights; his solos are a combination of magisterial elegance (''My Foolish Heart'') and tender pathos (''Emily''). Other highlights include obscurities like Gershwin's ''Delishious,'' Henry Nemo's ''When You Awake,'' and Jimmy Van Heusen's ''Nancy.'' And for the public at large and lounge hounds respectively, there are perennials like ''September Song'' and ''Laura,'' as well as a few bossa nova turns here and there. Following on from his first easy listening extravaganzas with Jackie Gleason in the '50s, Hackett brings to the fore an otherworldly trumpet sound often lost in the shuffle of his many swing engagements.

Album Review

Scott Yanow [allmusic.com]

This long-out-of-print LP contains one of his finest all-around recordings. The cornetist is featured on 11 Dixieland standards and joined by a 15-piece all-star band arranged by Bob Wilber; Wilber and tenor great Zoot Sims also receive some solo space on this essential release which is well deserving of reissue on CD.

Bobby Hackett's Biography

Scott Yanow [allmusic.com]

Bobby Hackett's mellow tone and melodic style offered a contrast to the brasher Dixieland-oriented trumpeters. Emphasizing his middle-register and lyricism, Hackett was a flexible soloist who actually sounded little like his main inspiration, Louis Armstrong.

When Hackett first came up he was briefly known as ''the new Bix'' because of the similarity in his approach to that of Bix Beiderbecke, but very soon he developed his own distinctive sound. Originally a guitarist (which he doubled on until the mid-'40s), Hackett performed in local bands, and by 1936 was leading his own group. He moved to New York in 1937, played with Joe Marsala, appeared at Benny Goodman's 1938 Carnegie Hall concert (recreating Beiderbecke's solo on ''I'm Coming Virginia''), recorded with Eddie Condon, and by 1939 had a short-lived big band. Hackett played briefly with Horace Heidt, and during 1941-1942 was with Glenn Miller's Orchestra, taking a famous solo on ''String of Pearls.'' Next up was a stint with the Casa Loma Orchestra, and then he became a studio musician while still appearing with jazz groups. Hackett was a major asset at Louis Armstrong's 1947 Town Hall Concert, in the 1950s he was a star on Jackie Gleason's commercial but jazz-flavored mood music albums, and he recorded several times with Eddie Condon and Jack Teagarden. During 1956-1957, Hackett led an unusual group that sought to modernize Dixieland (using Dick Cary's arrangements and an unusual instrumentation), but that band did not catch on. Hackett recorded some commercial dates during 1959-1960 (including one set of Hawaiian songs and another in which he was backed by pipe organ), he worked with Benny Goodman (1962-1963); backed Tony Bennett in the mid-'60s; co-led a well-recorded quintet with Vic Dickenson (1968-1970); and made sessions with Jim Cullum, the World's Greatest Jazz Band, and even Dizzy Gillespie and Mary Lou Williams, remaining active up until his death. Among the many labels Bobby Hackett recorded for as a leader were Okeh (reissued by Epic), Commodore, Columbia, Epic, Capitol, Sesac, Verve, Project 3, Chiaroscuro, Flying Dutchman, and Honey Dew.
