Herbie Mann

Herbie Mann played a wide variety of music throughout his career. He became quite popular in the 1960s, but in the '70s became so immersed in pop and various types of world music that he seemed lost to jazz. However, Mann never lost his ability to improvise creatively as his later recordings attest.

Herbie Mann began on clarinet when he was nine but was soon also playing flute and tenor. After serving in the Army, he was with Mat Mathews' Quintet (1953-1954) and then started working and recording as a leader. During 1954-1958 Mann stuck mostly to playing bop, sometimes collaborating with such players as Phil Woods, Buddy Collette, Sam Most, Bobby Jaspar, and Charlie Rouse. He doubled on cool-toned tenor and was one of the few jazz musicians in the '50s who recorded on bass clarinet; he also recorded a full album in 1957 (for Savoy) of unaccompanied flute.

After spending time playing and writing music for television, Mann formed his Afro-Jazz Sextet, in 1959, a group using several percussionists, vibes (either Johnny Rae, Hagood Hardy, or Dave Pike) and the leader's flute. He toured Africa (1960) and Brazil (1961), had a hit with "Comin' Home Baby," and recorded with Bill Evans. The most popular jazz flutist during the era, Mann explored bossa nova (even recording in Brazil in 1962), incorporated music from many cultures (plus current pop tunes) into his repertoire, and had among his sidemen such top young musicians as Willie Bobo, Chick Corea (1965), Attila Zoller, and Roy Ayers; at the 1972 Newport Festival his sextet included David Newman and Sonny Sharrock. By then Mann had been a producer at Embroyo (a subsidiary of Atlantic) for three years and was frequently stretching his music outside of jazz. As the '70s advanced, Mann became much more involved in rock, pop, reggae, and even disco. After leaving Atlantic at the end of the '70s, Mann had his own label for awhile and gradually came back to jazz. He recorded for Chesky, made a record with Dave Valentin, and in the '90s founded the Kokopelli label on which before breaking away in 1996, he was free to pursue his wide range of musical interests. Through the years, he recorded as a leader for Bethlehem, Prestige, Epic, Riverside, Savoy, Mode, New Jazz, Chesky, Kokopelli, and most significantly Atlantic. He passed away on July 1, 2003, following an extended battle with prostate cancer. His last record was 2004's posthumously released Beyond Brooklyn for Telarc. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

My very first flute fascination with the instrument was hearing Herbie's Flute Thing. back in 68 on the West Bank. I have never forgotten that moment and how sweet flute jazz is.

Solid old schcool jazz. That was my autocorrect feature going nuts above but it works
I had a dream where I was Herbie Mann... well at least I could play flute like him. I was the coolest person ever. I ran through the jungle playing jazz flute

I always loved the jazz flute. I've seen Herbie many times, he always was "swinging".

I grew up in the 70's and distinctly remember his music. I remember the Push Push record cover and grooving on the songs. Great music!
Herbie "is" da Mann!
In the 60's I heard Herbie Mann several times at the Cellar Door in Georgetown (DC). When my parents were visiting one time, I took them to hear him. I still remember my father saying that the guitarist had to be on drugs to play that fast. Now that my children are all 21 or older, I wish that Herbie was still around so we could go hear him.
Never heard him before but he is certainly great!

Memphis Underground was the first jazz album I bought. The ladies thought I was so cool.
I started listening to Herbie Mann when i was a toddler because of my Parents..gla d to have shared my birthday (April 16th) with him. What a Great Musician! Herbie Mann, Bud Shank, and Buddy Collette have that awesome flute sound you can't miss!! Long Live Herbie's Music!!
THE man for flute, simply stated. Who else recorded with Bill Evans and Duane Allman? I also had the absolute honor of waiting (as a restaurant server) on Herbie in 2001. He was the most kind, gracious, and knowledgable person I ever waited on, bar none. In a weird juxtapositio n , I waited on Barry Bonds a couple days later, who was the biggest, most arrogant a**hole I've ever seen. Memphis Underground!

In thi song Never Can Say Goodbye..... . . . . . .
Mann, as usual puts the haze in the picture as you look out the window and see her walking slowly down the walk out of sight
In the 60's I heard Herbie Mann at the Village Gate. His rendition of Summertime was fantastic.
I first became acquainted with Herbie through his Flautista Album in 1959. Through the years, he demonstrated his versatility from Latin jazz to pop and his flirtation with classical music. He was well known in Sante Fe, NM in the nineties and early 2000 Sorry to hear he died in 2003!
Klassic Kool - Booker T and the MG's meets Classical music grade Jazz. Incomparable !
