Herbie Mann Reunion Band

with Les McCann, David "Fathead" Newman, Chuck Rainey, etc.
In 1987, he conquered us with Herbie Mann, Jasil Brazz and the New York Samba Band. Again, big names are in the line-up, including Les McCann (vocals and acoustic piano) and David "Fathead" Newman (tenor sax), musicians who were with him when he became an international star at the beginning of the 1960s. One of the strengths of the world's most important jazz flutist is his orchestra, whose make-up changes with the repertoire. Profoundly influenced by South American music — as far back as the late 50s, this great precursor and discoverer of new talent was combining Brazilian pop songs with jazz — Mann intensely celebrates the music, no matter what the theme. The sound of his flute soars, giving the band all the leeway it needs to carry the beat. Undulating with his characteristic chic, Mann doesn't steel the show, he raises it to heights worthy of a great line-up. If great minds think alike and if birds of a feather flock together, then hold on to your seats, 'cause we're in for a great "Summertime".
