by George Rodrigue
Twenty-sixth in the series. George Rodrigue completes a New Orleans Jazz Trilogy, paying tribute to Al Hirt who graced the bands of the Dorsey brothers and Benny Goodman, among others, and later teamed with Pete Fountain (JF96). Though best known for his 60's pop hits, the Grammy winning "Java" and "Cotton Candy", Al also played the classics, performed for eight U.S. Presidents (including JFK's inauguration), produced 50 albums and was 15 times voted World's Top Trumpeter in Playboy Magazine's reader polls. An enviable musical life captured by Rodrigue in his inimical style and witnessed by the omnipresent Blue Dog.
