• Al HIRT - Swinging Dixie

Al Hirt was a very adept player of his chosen instrument, the trumpet. In fact it is fair to say that from a relatively young age he was a virtuoso player and often overqualified for a lot of the Dixieland and pop music that he loved to perform.

Featured here are three volumes of his 'Singin' Dixie!' series and they include many great standards such as 'Tiger Rag', 'Saints', 'South Rampart Street Parade' and many more!

Glorious stereo across this whole set helps to showcase the 36 great tracks - a tighter sound out of New Orleans you will never hear!
