Review by Scott Yanow
Herbie Mann's second in a long string of albums for Atlantic resulted in some slightly commercial but mostly enjoyable music. Two songs match the flutist with three strings and a Latin rhythm section, while three co-star vibraphonist Dave Pike with an expanded rhythm section; the remaining two tunes add four trumpets to the group. Best are renditions of "Moanin'" and Charlie Parker's "Au Privave," while "The Song of Delilah" is given a haunting treatment. Some of the other performances are more lightweight (including a truncated "Why Don't You Do Right"), making this out of print LP a bit of a mixed bag.
