Herbie Mann: Just Wailin'

Album Notes

Personnel: Herbie Mann (flute); Charlie Rouse (tenor saxophone); Mal Waldron (piano); Kenny Burrell (guitar); George Joyner (bass); Arthur Taylor (drums).

Recorded in Hackensack, New Jersey on February 14, 1958.

This CD reissue of an earlier Prestige LP emphasizes (but does not stick exclusively to) the blues. The sextet has impressive players in flutist Herbie Mann, Charlie Rouse on tenor, guitarist Kenny Burrell, pianist Mal Waldron, bassist George Joyner and drummer Art Taylor. The material (originals by Waldron, Burrell and Calvin Massey, in addition to a brief "Jumpin' With Symphony Sid") is reasonably challenging...The straight-ahead jam session has its strong moments, and as long as one doesn't let their expectations get out of hand, the music will be enjoyable despite the lack of wild sparks. ~ Scott Yanow
