Bobby Hackett is a special case who doesn't get taken seriously, but having Louis say that only he wanted only Bobby to play obbligati behind him is a supreme vote of confidence! The Gleason and Enoch Light albums got shelved in the "Easy Listening" ghetto; his own jazz recordings in the "Dixieland" bin. He could do it all: I heard him in 1974 at a Newport concert play "Body and Soul," Just You, Just Me," and a slow blues with Vic Dickenson, Teddy Wilson, Milt Hinton, Jo Jones, and a lurkingly inadible Jabbo Smith. Lyricism, harmonic sophistication, and grace personified!

I have both the first and second original studio albums as CD's
But you probably know now that it has been re-released, and it is on Itunes

Love that Band just love that band.
