4.0 out of 5 stars The shimmering sharps and flats of Herbie Mann, 1 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bossa Nova (Audio CD)
I bought this CD mainly for Herbie Mann`s Brazilian recordings, especially as I like the bossa nova rhythms of Dom Um Romao with the Sergio Mendes group. I have more of Mann`s Brazilian recordings on the CD Right Now/Latin Fever compilation. This Bossa Nova CD is also a compilation of Mann`s Do The Bossa Nova and Brazil, Bossa Nova and Blues CDs. This Bossa Nova compilation isn`t quite up to the standard of the Right Now/Latin Fever compilation; but it is still pretty good. Being a flutist myself I can recognize that technically and rhythmically Herbie Mann was one of the best jazz flutists; along with Hubert Laws, who also recorded with the Sergio Mendes group. Joe Farrell was also pretty good. Of the two CDs on this compilation the Brazilian recording of Do the Bossa Nova is the better, although the New York recording of Brazil, Bossa Nova and Blues has some good tracks, notably Minha de Saudade. If you like Herbie Mann and Latin rhythms then you must buy this CD.
