Hootin' 'n Tootin' is the debut album by American saxophonist Fred Jackson, and the sole recording under his leadership, recorded in 1962 and released on the Blue Note label.[1] The CD reissue added seven previously unissued bonus tracks from a later session.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 4½ stars and stated "Hootin' 'n Tootin' is a thoroughly enjoyable set of funky soul-jazz with hard bop overtones. It is true that Jackson doesn't try anything new on the set, but he proves to be a capable leader... the result is a modest but highly entertaining set of earthy, bluesy soul-jazz that should have been heard by a wider audience".[2]
