Good collection for the beginner
(3 out of 5 stars)
"This is a good choice if you are just learning about Herbie Mann. Most indivduals don't think of the flute as a jazz instrument, but Herbie proves them wrong. This collection showcases Mann's different moods,including his interesting "The Evolution of Mann". A good first buy CD, that will open you up to other of his music."
Good, Swingin' Latin Flute Music

(4 out of 5 stars)
"While recording for Verve records in the late '50's Herbie Mann's music reflected a decidedly Latin bent. This was a very good thing! The flute, especially Herbie's flute, lends itself well to this genre. He single-handidly popularized the instrument and this collection of tunes provides a good example of how he did it. Besides the Latin-tinged numbers, there's also a fair share of standards. His versions of "Stardust" and "You Stepped Out of a Dream" are particularly beautiful."
