An early showcase for the cool, compressed flute work of the young Herbie Mann – a style that created a great bridge to jazz for so many later players on the instrument! The Mann heard here isn't the overblown, soul-drenched Herbie of the 60s – but a player who's very careful with his ... read more CD

An excellent album of Latin material from Herbie Mann – and proof that he's equally great in just about any setting!
