V-Disc Recording Parties

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
V-Disc's Recording Parties, made exclusively for the use of the U.S. military during and after World War II features rare material by Bobby Hackett and Bob Haggart. The first session finds Hackett working with a reunited edition of the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, including original members Eddie Edwards on trombone and drummer Tony Spargo, along with pianist Frank Signorelli and clarinetist Brad Gowans. Hackett blends in very well with the band as they play four songs from their early repertoire, including "Tiger Rag" with Gowans taking all of the solo breaks; Edwards' on-the-money impression of Kid Ory's raucous trombone in "Muskrat Ramble," and Hackett in the forefront ...

V-Disc's Recording Parties, made exclusively for the use of the U.S. military during and after World War II features rare material by Bobby Hackett and Bob Haggart. The first session finds Hackett working with a reunited edition of the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, including original members Eddie Edwards on trombone and drummer Tony Spargo, along with pianist Frank Signorelli and clarinetist Brad Gowans. Hackett blends in very well with the band as they play four songs from their early repertoire, including "Tiger Rag" with Gowans taking all of the solo breaks; Edwards' on-the-money impression of Kid Ory's raucous trombone in "Muskrat Ramble," and Hackett in the forefront during "Sensation Rag." The cornetist leads a second session with Eddie Condon, clarinetist Peanuts Hucko, baritone saxophonist Ernie Caceres, trombonist Cutty Cutshall, pianist Charlie Queener, bassist Irv Manning, and drummer Morey Feld. An extended performance of "Oh! Baby" is used by Condon to individually introduce the musicians. The band delves into classic jazz and ballads that became popular in the 1930s and 1940s, all with an effortless swing, and with the superb interplay in "Fidgety Feet" making it an obvious highlight. Haggart's session includes some veterans of Benny Goodman's orchestra trumpeter Chris Griffin and alto saxophonist Toots Mondello, along with Hucko, pianist Stan Freeman, guitarist Danny Perri, and vocals by Jimmy Brown who sounds somewhat like Johnny Mercer. Most of the material is fairly obscure, including Frank Loesser's blues "Rumble, Rumble" which features some sassy muted solo work by Griffin, the leader's boppish "Haggart's Lady," and Hoagy Carmichael's ballad "Ivy." The sound quality throughout all three dates is excellent, so fans of either musician will want to pick up this Jazz Unlimited compilation.
