Album Review

This Music Masters CD, released in 1991, contains altoist Vincent Herring's earliest recordings (some of which predate his association with Nat Adderley). Actually his Cannonball Adderley-inspired style was already recognizable. Herring is the dominant soloist throughout with pianists John Hicks and Bruce Barth making significant contributions. The material has a nice balance between fiery pieces and laidback ballads and most of the solos tend to be concise, melodic and swinging.

Customer Reviews

The track "You Know My Eyes" is absolutely transcendant.

The rest of the album is pretty good, but this track is possibly the most beautiful jazz tracks I have ever heard, if not some of the most beautiful MUSIC I have every heard.


Born: November 19, 1964 in Hopkinsville, KY

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

It was only fitting that Vincent Herring gained his first important recognition playing with Nat Adderley, for his sound is strongly influenced by his idol, Cannonball Adderley. Born in Kentucky and raised in California, Herring moved to New York in 1983, and played with a variety of major musicians (including Lionel Hampton, David Murray, Horace Silver, and Art Blakey) before joining Adderley (1987-1993)....
