Herbie Mann: At the Village Gate (1961)

MP3 320 Kbps | 92 Mb (covers inc.) | Live recording Remarkably few of flutist Herbie Mann's recordings are available on CD, but fortunately this one did get reissued. Mann's hit version of "Comin' Home Baby" from this live set became his first big hit. Composer Ben Tucker plays second bass on that cut, and Mann's other sidemen include vibraphonist Hagood Hardy, bassist Ahmed Abdul-Malik, drummer Rudy Collins, and Chief Bey and Ray Mantilla on percussion. In addition to "Comin' Home Baby," Mann and his men perform memorable versions of "Summertime" and "It Ain't Necessarily So"; the latter is 20 minutes long. Recommended. - AMG Personnel: Herbie Mann (Flutes) Hagood Hardy (Vibraharp) Ahmad Abdul-Malik (Double Bass) Ray Mantilla (Congas and Percussion) Chief Bey (African Drum and Percussion) Rudy Collins (Drums) Ben Tucker (Double Bass) - on 1st track only Tracks: 1.
