Bobby Hackett possessed a talent for a lyrical style and polished, near-perfect execution which set him apart from all his colleagues. Trumpeter, cornetist and guitarist, Bobby was one of the greatest improvisers in the history of jazz, with “probably the most perfect ear for harmony in all jazz”. His career spanned six decades (1930s – 1970s) and encompassed every style from New Orleans traditional to big band swing, to the easy listening mood music of the 1950s. To hear Hackett’s harmonic structural powers in full flight you need only listen to any of the twelve tracks in this collection.
THE 2XHD MASTERING PROCESS
For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, 15 ips NAB master tape was played on a Nagra-T?modified?with?high-end?tube playback electronics wired with OCC?silver cable from the playback head direct to a Telefunken EF806 tube. The Nagra T has one of the best transports ever made, having four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and? a?tape tension head.
2xHD did an analog transfer to DSD256 (11.2mHz) using Merging Horus/Hapi A\D converter and a dCS Vivaldi clock. Each format (96kHz, 192kHz, DSD2.8mHz, DSD5.6mHz and DSD11.2mHz) was created from that transfer.
