“Presenting Pete Fountain With Al Hirt – Bourbon Street” is a collaboration with Al Hirt on Trumpet.
Bourbon Street is the companion piece to another Coral record released in the same year of 1962: “Pete Fountain & Al Hirt: The New Orleans Scene”. It’s laid out identically to “The New Orleans Scene”, alternating between a full New Orleans band featuring both Fountain and Hirt, and Pete’s smaller night club gigging ensemble of the early ’60s.
