"Album Cover of the Week"

Famous trumpeter Al Hirt was born in New Orleans and was given his first trumpet at age 6--it had been purchased at a local pawn shop!  He went on to perform with various Dixieland groups and later formed his own band and opened his own club
"Al Hirt's Night Club" on Bourbon St.  Hirt had 22 albums on the Billboard Charts in the 50's and 60's.  Find your copy of this Hit Album "Music to Watch Girls By" in Booth #48 at OCT.
