FUNK FOUNDATIONS w/ George Cvetkovski Tribute to Herbie Mann // 08.09.21
HERBIE MANN “the guy responsible for the flute becoming a legitimate jazz instrument”.
Herbie was the first American to fly to Brazil to jam and record with real Brazilian musicians…Before Bossa Nova popularity took off in the US.
He was accomplished musician…with great sense of rhythm. In the L60s and E70s he got more into the funk and fusions styles.
Herbie Mann had hundreds of releases…and he had even more collaborations.
As always, I will dig wider and deeper in my private vinyl collection…I focus on his work as a musician, producer, label owner (Embryo)…
as well as his influences, collaborations and covers by other artists.
Enjoy the show.
