Herman's, Woody Big New Herd - At The Monterey Jazz Festival.Vendor: Atlantic Records
RARE/2HAND VINYL LP ON ATLANTIC 1960.
Atlantic SD 1328 made in USA with original inner sleeve. Vinyl EX. Cover EX.
Originally released on Atlantic Records in 1960, BIG NEW HERD is a lively, imaginative slice of modern/post-Swing Era big band jazz. Herman leads an edition of his Herd that features many players that would become leaders in their own right: Zoot Sims, Charlie Byrd, Mel Lewis and Victor Feldman among them. The tunes are a nice cross-section of what Herman does best: rich interpretations of standards ("Skylark") and blues with Ellington overtones ("Like Some Blues Man," featuring an incredibly bluesy acoustic guitar solo from Byrd). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woody_Herman
