Live at the Roosevelt Grill With Vic Dickenson, Vol. 4 catches cornetist Bobby Hackett performing on various nights at the New York City club from March through May of 1970. The '70s were rough for Hackett, who found himself toiling with health problems and financial woes during a time when traditional jazz of any kind was increasingly being ignored by the public. All that is in direct contrast, however, to how beautifully the one-time Bix Beiderbecke disciple plays here. Sharing the front line with trombonist Dickenson, Hackett's trademark supple tone and swinging phrases are clearly audible on such standards as "You Stepped Out of a Dream," "Take the 'A' Train," and the sublime "Sunday." Always one to stay au courant, Hackett even tries out his luscious melodic style on such cocktail/bossa nova numbers as "'Mister Lucky" and "The Girl from Ipanema." Showcasing the stellar rhythm section of pianist Dave McKenna, bassist Jack Lesberg, and drummer Cliff Leeman, the recording does contain some crowd noise, which only adds to the period atmosphere. ~ Matt Collar
