Biography
Robert Leo "Bobby" Hackett (January 31, 1915 - June 7, 1976) was an American jazz musician who played trumpet, cornet and guitar with the bands of Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman in the late thirties and early forties. Hackett is probably best known for being the featured soloist on some of the Jackie Gleason mood music albums during the 1950s. Biography: Hackett was born in Providence, Rhode Island, to a family of Irish immigrants. He made his name as a follower of the legendary cornet player Bix Beiderbecke: Benny Goodman hired him to recreate Bix's famous "I'm Coming Virginia" solo at his (Goodman's) 1938 Carnegie Hall concert.
