4.0 out of 5 stars Uncommon World Beat 10 Aug 2013
By George Spiggot - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well the title is anything but common. The ever versitile Herbie Mann once again proves his abiltiy to adapt to and perform anything. This time 'round for this 1960 recording he focuses on the Afro-Cuban sound, and surprise, surprise, nails it. He is joined by the equally strong presence of Johnny Rae on vibraharp. Their interplay is quite good. There is also, as one would expect on an Afro-Cuban recording, a heavy presence of various percussion. The songs are all solid and can stand alone.

My only real complaint is the mix of the trumpets, which sound too distant, as if coming from another building. I'm unsure
if it's a bad mix or done on purpose. Regardless, this is a solid recording from an artist who no one could ever claim was formulmatic. I have been a fan for 30+ years of Herbie's work and was not disappointed in this purchase.

Ethnic music, not H.M.'s best by far. Very dissappointed with this style of music. I will be more careful in the future.
