This, from a blurb from a new Hirt CD (http://www.worldsrecords.com/cgi-bin/storeR.cgi?cart_id=01-23-07.wrnr1.13019&specific=itemcode&phrase=60077):

"This CD assembles selections from Al Hirt's four-decade career and celebrates the joy in music. Al Hirt was an insturmental pop phenomenon during the 60's - a pop, commercial musician, and had a succesful format. He is not a jazz trumpet and never was a jazz trumpet."

Maybe not ONLY jazz, but not jazz at all?  Would Mr Hirt agree with this?,
