Herbie Mann • Flute, Brass, Vibes and Percussion

Review by Scott Yanow
In 1960, flutist Herbie Mann put together a very interesting band that was in its brief existence (before Mann's interests shifted elsewhere) one of the top in Afro-Cuban jazz. Utilizing four trumpets (including Doc Cheatham), up to three percussionists and a flute-vibes-bass-drums quartet, Mann performs four standards (including "Dearly Beloved," "I'll Remember April" and "Autumn Leaves") and two originals in a style that was beyond bop and much more African- and Cuban-oriented. This LP (long deserving of being reissued on CD) is quite underrated and is one of the finest of Mann's long career.

En 1960, el flautista Herbie Mann armó una banda muy interesante que en su breve existencia (antes de que los intereses de Mann cambiaran a otra parte) se convirtió en uno de los mejores del jazz afrocubano. Utilizando cuatro trompetas (incluido Doc Cheatham), hasta tres percusionistas y un cuarteto de flautas-bombo-batería, Mann presenta cuatro estándares (incluyendo "Dearly Beloved", "I'll Remember April" y "Autumn Leaves") y dos originales en un estilo que estaba más allá del bop y mucho más orientado hacia los africanos y cubanos. Este LP (que merece ser reeditado en CD) está bastante subestimado y es uno de los mejores de la larga carrera de Mann.
