2 more 60s classics by Herbie – with some very groovy flute jazz tracks! Herbie Mann Plays The Roar Of The Greasepaint has kind of a silly gimmick, but the album's a nice one! Herbie plays flute over arrangements of tunes from this famous 60s musical – and although the arrangements are done by Ray Ellis, they've got a lot more of a groove than his usual work, and mostly bounce along in a jaunty mode that's a perfect foil for Herbie's flute style. Titles include "The Joker", "This Dream", "Who Can I Turn To", "Sweet Beginning", and "Feeling Good". On Today!, Herbie's soulful flute is set to large arrangements by Oliver Nelson – the man who was making it big with many other jazz soloists in the 60s. This album's different than most other Nelson hard-swinging efforts in that it's got a great group that features Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Dave Pike on vibes, and Patato Valdes on percussion. Tracks include "Arrasto", "Today", "Yesterday", "The Night Before", and "If You Gotta Make A Fool Of Somebody". Great op-art cover, too! It hurts our eyes to look at it!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Herbie Mann

Reggae
Atlantic (Japan), 1974. Used
A surprisingly strong mix of 70s modes happening here – as the funky flute of Herbie Mann takes on some of the nascent reggae grooves of the time – with results that are a lot nicer than you might expect! There's some core rhythms on the record from Tommy McCook, but Herbie's regular ... CD
Embryo, 1971. Used
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 ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1976/1983. Used 2CDs
A double CD set that brings together 2 of Herbie's stranger albums. Gagaku & Beyond is a weird bit of crossover work from Herbie – done an "eastern" style, with heavy Japanese influences, and tracks that are long, spare, and spacey, with a very meditative feel. Herbie's Family ... CD

Part Of The Search
Atlantic/Rhino, 1974. Used

High Blues Pressure
Atlantic/Koch, 1968. Used
A real gem from Freddie Hubbard's 60s years – an all soul jazz outing, cut with a hip array of players that show that young Fred was definitely on the forefront of jazz at the time! Despite the "blues" in the title, the main groove is spiritual soul jazz – in a style that ... CD

John Coltrane

My Favorite Things
Atlantic, 1961. Used

Modern Jazz Quartet

Fontessa
Atlantic, 1956. Used
