Herbie Mann - Yardbird Site - 1957

Although flutist Herbie Mann’s reputation suffered in the jazz world in later years due to his interest in other styles of music, during the 1954-58 period he stuck mostly to cool bebop and held his own with the best. This Savoy recording finds him matching ideas with the great altoist Phil Woods, along with vibraphonist Eddie Costa, guitarist Joe Puma, bassist Wendell Marshall and drummer Bobby Donaldson, and the results are quite enjoyable. In addition to his flute flights on three group originals and “Yardbird Suite,”Mann fares quite well on tenor during the two other pieces. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide Green Stamp Monsta!
