Overview

The Al Hirt Collection is an outstanding introduction to the trumpeter's biggest hits from the mid-'60s, assembling instrumental favorites, including "Java," "Cotton Candy," "Sugar Lips," "Up Above My Head (I Hear Music in the Air)," and "Fancy Pants." What makes the package so special, however, is the inclusion of the complete and much sought-after 1964 LP Beauty and the Beard, recorded with the young Ann-Margret; equally noteworthy is Hirt's blistering rendition of the "Green Hornet Theme," plainly one of the most memorable and exciting theme songs in the history of television.
