    Re: Name this Al Hirt tune!

    Thank you for the suggestion Bernie,

    I have played all of the free sound bytes on the Internet, mostly at Amazon.com, covering Al Hirt songs, including Java.

    Of over 200 songs, the one I'm looking for was not discovered.

    In a few days I will post the sound file of the actual song we're discussing, then I'm sure one of the gifted Trumpet Master folks will know it.

    Thanks for suggesting Java.
    Take care.

    Find a way to rip it from the DVD (it's digital already) and post it so we can listen. I guarantee we'll figure it out.

    It was a very rapid fanfare type of song but I don't know its name; it went something like this: "Brap-brap-brap-BRAP-brababrabrabraBRAbrabrabra, dunt-dunt-dunt-DUNT-dadaduhdadadada."

    OK, keep laughing! I am no muscian but I believe that you as a trumpet pro could probably help me figure out what this song is so that I can seek it out further on the Internet or buy the album or CD that it's on.

    THANK YOU so very much for your help.
    Take care.

    This tune seems to be a really secret one. (FBI case?).

    It is not mentioned by name anywhere on the net, but some place
    it is mentioned that Al Hirt played a "Dixieland melody".

    May be this helps in your search?

    Hi Norland,

    Thank you for suggesting Dixieland Melody -- I will try to find a sound byte of that and then as mentioned before, in the next few days I'll upload a file here so we can all listen and conjecture as to the actual name of the song.

    Thanks again for your input.
    Take care.

    Re: Name this Al Hirt tune!

    I bet if I could hear it, I would know it. I have over 35 Al Hirt albums. He was truly one of the all time greats in commercial/dixie trumpet playing. He was also very under rated because of his dixie roots and his recordings of Java, Cotton Candy and Sugar Lips. You can't blame him for wanting to make money. For some amazing Al Hirt find "Horn-a-Plenty" with the Billy May Orchestra with Gozzo playing lead trumpet,"Trumpet and Strings" and "Al Hirt, the Greatest Horn in the World". Just three of the amazing abilities of Jumbo. He played from the heart like very few and I still miss him. His Christmas album gets played every year and it was made in '65 if I remember correctly. Also on the Honey in the Horn album which contains Java, his rendition of The Man with a Horn, I can't Get Started and Al Di La still give me goose bumps. Good Luck.

    May be one sound byte is a bit short to figure out the melody?
    Better if you can post a part of, or the whole melody?

    I checked with the Univ. of Arizona Band Dept. Their best guess is that Al Hirt played Bugler's Holiday.
