Herbie Mann hits the discos – but given the flute player's roots in jazz, the set's more of an electric funk outing overall! Herbie's working here with his Family of Mann group – that cool combo that features lots of work on keyboards from Pat Rebillot, who also handled the arrangements for the set – in a wicked blend of Mann's flute and his own keyboard lines – supported with some nicely funky rhythms from Steve Gadd on drums and Tony Levin on bass! Disco touches are added by a bit of congas from Ray Barretto, and some sweet female soul vocals that come in on the choruses – in a mode that's a bit like the work on Kudu Records at the time. Titles include "Pick Up The Pieces", "Guava Jelly", "High Above The Andes", "I Can't Turn You Loose", "Mediterranean", "Lady Marmalade", and "Hi-Jack".

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Atlantic, 1969. Sealed (reissue)
A sweet soulful set from Herbie Mann – one that has the jazz flautist taking on the 60s sound of Memphis!

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

A nicely polished side of Bobby – with him singing and playing piano in front of a set of large group arrangements that he conducts. In a way, the album reminds us of some of the middle period work of Harry Connick Jr, with a strong appreciation for a classic jazz vocal style, but also a ... LP, Vinyl record album
