[Liner notes]The first day it was Mr. Hirt and Maestro. One rehearsal, two concerts and two recording sessions later it was Al and Arthur. Two giants in the world of musical entertainment had become admiring friends.Al Hirt, the most exciting jazz trumpeter of our time, and Arthur Fiedler, celebrated conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra entering his 35th year in that post, would perhaps seem an unlikely combination. But not when we remember that Hirt's initial training was classsical (Cincinnati Conservatory of Music) and that Fiedler annually embraces swinging symphonic arrangements of pop trends of the moment (including Beatlemania, with Fiedler's first pop single, I Want to Hold Your Hand).I suppose the ice was first broken at the rehearsal when, just before turning to Eili, Eili, Fiedler stage-whispered to Hirt: "Think kosher." Al thought that was kind of a "gas," and it proved to be the beginning of a good-natured and dynamic relationship that was to shape the unique performances which distinguish "Pops" Goes the Trumpet. I want to dwell on Eili, Eili for a moment because more than any other title in the album it illustrates the confluence of the Hirt and Fiedler styles. Fiedler has had a special arrangement of this centuries-old Hebrew chant in his books since the '30s. Hirt comes to the tune with the Ziggy Elman and Harry James versions as his heritage. The juxtaposition of Hirt's free-wheeling, deeply felt, highly personal interpretation of the solo line with the superbly disciplined symphonic collaboration of the Boston Pops musicians results in a rendition that is unique and extremely affecting.A brief tour of our program may help you enjoy it to the utmost. We open with proper pomp and ceremony: the brilliant music from "The Brave Bulls," La Virgen de la Macarena. The aforementioned Eili, Eili is followed by Morton Gould's quietly swinging Pavanne, featuring muted trumpet. A brand new setting by Richard Hayman of Carnival of Venice, which exploits the technical agility of both soloist and orchestra in a set of ingenious variations, leads us to Leroy Anderson's reflective Trumpeter's Lullaby (especially interesting is Hirt's imaginative rhythmic freedom as he gently weaves the melody around Fiedler's even accompaniment). The side ends with Raymond Scott's witty little classic, The Toy Trumpet.A bravura trumpet display that rocked Symphony Hall during the concert opens Side 2. Al is joined by Robert Mogilnicki and Andre Come of the Boston Pops in Anderson's Bugler's Holiday, a two-and-a-half-minute example of perpetual motion featuring three solo trumpets. Next we come to the Haydn Trumpet concerto with two rousing Allegros -- framing a lyrical Andante -- which make some rather severe technical demands of the soloist. It is a tribute to Hirt's talent that he is able to encompass this strictly classical eighteenth-century concerto with such thorough conviction and style. The penultimate selection is, again, an exclusive Boston Pops setting of The Lost Chord. Hirt's performance is notable not only for his superb legato style but also for the fantastic display of breath control and reserve power he turns on to such brilliant effect for the ending.As part of his annual salute to hit pop tunes, Fiedler had programmed Java throughout the season, and it was not surprising that when the Java man himself arrived in Boston, Fiedler asked him if he would play the Pops arrangement as an encore. Hirt did, and with obvious relish -- "It's quite an experience to go from eight sidemen to ninety-three!" His rendition was such a success that everyone agreed it had to become the album encore.Well, there you have it: the most versatile jazz trumpeter of our day, Al Hirt, and the most versatile musical creation since the invention of the tempered scale, Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops. Enjoy them!-- Peter Dellheim

Just heard the album tonight July 30 2015 and my copy was flawless. Sad to say Al Hirt or "Jumbo" his nickname among friends was relegated to history to be somehow replaced by Doc Severnsen of the Johnny Carson Tonight Show. Not even close!
