Herbie MannDiscotheque (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Big Break (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $8.99

Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $13.99
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!

A wonderful 70s set from Herbie Mann – and one that features some heavy help from P&P maestro Patrick Adams! The album's more of an Adams-directed affair than the usual Herbie set – as Adams produced and arranged all the tracks, and really takes Mann in the direction of a hip late ... read more CD
