Reseña de álbum

Purely by the accidental circumstance of having a relatively small slice of music from which to draw, Verve's Woody Herman Jazz Masters volume provides a service by selecting from all five Philips albums that document one of Herman's best bands. This was a zesty, youth-driven outfit, studded with fine musicians like the late trumpeter Bill Chase, tenor player Sal Nistico, pianist/arranger Nat Pierce (who apparently ran the band behind the scenes), trombonist Phil Wilson and drummer Jake Hanna.
