Today's Events: 4/27/11
April 27th, a day to remember. Trumpeter Al "Jumbo" Hirt, a Louisiana Music Hall of Famer who died on this day in 1999 at the age of 77. Born and raised in New Orleans, Hirt’s father was a police officer, an officer who handed his son a trumpet at the age of six, only to change his life, as well as the world’s. Hirt was playing professionally before college, until moving to Ohio to study at the Cinciniatti Conservatory of Music. Ten years (and a whole lot of swing dancing) later, the trumpeter returned home to lead Dixieland groups, win a Grammy, record the theme song for "The Green Hornet," open his own club on Rue Bourbon, and manage to get injured while performing on a float during Mardi Gras in 1970. Hirt is buried in Metarie Cemetary.
