Vinyl Feature: Bobby Hackett - Rendezvous
Rendezvous by Bobby Hackett is an incredible display of trumpet mastery by a maestro of the art! If you haven't heard it yet I suggest you look out for a copy as soon as possible and immerse yourself into some heavenly jazz atmosphere.
Released in 1956 Rendevouz was Bobby Hackett's 5th album and was on the Regal and EMI Record labels.
It is a mono album which some people claim is better than stereo, but having listened to many albums of both kinds over nearly 50 years I can say that the sound quality has more to do with the way the album was produced and mastered with both sounding equally great when done well.
I really like the front cover, especially the word "rendezvous" in various colours while the photograph of Mr Hackett is in a very stylish monochrome.
The back of the cover is very plain, but functional. Nothing much or out of the ordinary to report there... ;-)
