This is one of the best Herbie Mann recordings and arguably his most rewarding of the 1970s. This long out of print LP features the leader/flutist, David Newman (on tenor and flute), the avant-garde guitarist Sonny Sharrock, and a fine backup rhythm section (electric pianist Pat Rebillot, bassist Andy Muson, and drummer Reggie Ferguson) stretching out on a variety of R&Bish material including "Respect Yourself," "Memphis Underground," and "Hold on, I'm Comin'." The high quality of the solos and the spirited ensembles (which were inspired by the audience at the 1972 New York Jazz Festival) make this a generally memorable session.
Herbie At His Peak
A great live recording of Herbie Mann and his amazing band at the time, including David "Fathead" Newman on sax and flute. The band is tight and Herbie is in the groove throughout. If you're looking for a definitive Herbie Mann recording, this is it.
One Cool Cat!
The "cool" that James Bond gave to the spy industry, Herbie Mann has done that for Jazz in this album. Notwithstanding, David "Fathead" Newman and Sonny Sharrock pushed the same buttons as Herbie in this consumate jazz compilation. An outstanding performance of the entire cast at the Montreux and New York Jazz festivals in 1972. This album seems as contemporary today as it did when it first came out. As a college student, I wore the grooves out of this one when it first came out in '72! I am very glad that it is available once again.Certainly worth looking at adding to any jazz collection.
