AllMusic Review by

Once a virtuoso trumpet player for the Dorseys, Al Hirt, essentially a Dixieland genius on the horn, broke through to a mass audience with a string of joyous, energetic, and engaging instrumental hit singles in the 1960s, including infectious delights like "Java," "Cotton Candy," "Sugar Lips," "Up Above My Head," and "Fancy Pants," all of which are collected here in this fine 20-track, single-disc introduction to this one-of-a-kind horn player.
