The Evolution Of Mann
My dad made me a fan of Herbie Mann, as he was a fan. Through him playing Memphis Underground and Push Push, I would eventually listen to Mann on my own terms. I have some of his albums, keyword being some, because Mann recorded A LOT of records. His Atlantic work is what I prefer, but he also recorded for a few other labels too.
The Evolution Of Mann is a 2LP compilation released in 1972, and it looks like it was released around the time Mann's label, Embryo, would be closing shop.
It was nice to go to a thrift store again after being away for too long, and finding something as good as this. That, and the usual family church records.
