As a result his mellow sound enhanced world-wide reputation.

In fact Bobby Hackett first met Jackie Gleason in 1942.

At the time Gleason told Hackett that he wanted to record his smooth cornet playing with a string section.

A decade later Gleason realized his dream with Bobby Hackett.

Eventually Bobby Hackett became the pioneer of Easy Listening.

His mellow sound would been brought some supermarket and department store shoppers, diners, elevator riders, doctors’ office visitors comfort.
