Al “Jumbo” Hirt was a larger-than-life performer who had the flexibility to bounce from pop to jazz to gospel and back again without missing a note. While he may be best remembered for his tireless work to deliver the history of traditional Creole music to audiences worldwide, this neat collection covers the gamut of his studio work.

His incredible version of “Java” is the highlight, but he delivers a solid knockout on “Gonna Fly Now” (the theme song from “Rocky”) and artistic subtleness to “Rhapsody in Blue.” He takes to the superhighway of jazz with “A Night in Tunisia,” while weaving special magic with a chorus on “Gospel of No Name City.”
