To my mind this is "party dance" music. Obviously a live recording, each of the three lengthy tracks feature a lot of percussion (two percussionists / conga drummers plus a "jazz drummer in a sextet!) There are only two "melody" instrumentalists (Mann on flute and Hagood Hardy on vibes). With the shortest track lasting over 8 minutes, the solos (mostly Herbie Mann, exclusively on flute) are long. Some compare these solos with those of Coltrane, but in my ming Coltrane takes the biscuit.
The tone on all three tracks is upbeat, despite two being traditionally "ballads".
If you are in the mood for engaging physically with the music, this album is for you. My preference is for the first track (which incidentally has two bass players to make a septet). The other two are over long, but in the live situation euphoria sustained the performance.

Herbie Mann's cool classy style does not disappoint here. To be honest the recording quality is not the best ! Read morePublished on 8 Jan. 2014 by ST Nicholls
Superb C.D. also have on vinyl for about 40 years, so nice to have in the car.
