Herbie MannInspiration I Feel ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $9.99
Herbie Mann takes strong inspiration from the great Ray Charles here – working in a cool mode that's partly the soulful sound of Mann's other work for Atlantic Records, and partly the fuller style of Charles' 60s music for ABC! Backings are full, but very groovy – thanks to ... read more CD

Embryo (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99
One of Herbie Mann's biggest albums – and one of his funkiest too! The cover's a bit of an off-putter – although it probably helped sell the record, back in the day – but the grooves are as rock-solid as anything that Herbie cut at the time – tight, focused, and a perfect ... read more CD

Stone flute, or stoned flute, the album's got a really laidback feel – a sound that's very open-ended, and quite different from some of the crossover classics Herbie Mann was cutting a few short years before!

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
