Bobby Hackett and Jack Teagarden – Jazz Ultimate/Coast Concert (1955)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Coast Concert/Jazz Ultimate collects two of Bobby Hackett’s mid-’50s albums on one CD. Coast Concert from 1955 features Hackett live with old friend Jack Teagarden on a selection of lively Dixieland standards such as “Basin Street Blues,” “Fidgety Feet,” and “Royal Garden Blues.” Jazz Ultimate from 1957 reteams Hackett and Teagarden for a similarly themed studio set, from which “Way Down Yonder in New Orleans,” “Oh Baby,” and “‘S Wonderful” are some of the highlights. An appealing two-fer that highlights one of Hackett’s most successful collaborations.
