Customer Reviews

The Mann

Herbie, what can I say. Memphis Underground was the first jazz album I heard as a child. It is still the coolest and funkiest, Herbie told me 2 things before he passed and the last time I saw him in New York, "Live every day like it is your last" and "Just do your thing, don't let anyone tell you can't". Just passing them along to all of you and the universe. Love you, Mann.

A classic

I don't own many jazz albums but this is one of my all-time favourites. Not a weak track in sight (take note, iTunes reviewer). The versions of the Sam & Dave and Aretha Franklin songs couldn't be better. Try this with while working out - Memphis Underground for the warm-up, New Orleans starts the vigorous part of your exercise and after about 20 minutes you can cool down with Battle Hymn Of The Republic. Absolutely great!

Great album. To be clear, not a Jazz album

This record really shook things up in the Jazz world because this is a jazz artist basically doing an instrumental rock album. IYou can't exactly call it fusion but the guitars are distorted and psychedelic sounding at times. The themes are more pop than anything else but the only thing that connects this to jazz in any way is some improvisation. Picture Steve Cropper dong an instrumental album and blending soul. pop and a slightly heavy rock sound and that's about what this sounds like. With that said, I think this album is fantastic! I love both Jazz and rock.
