The Best of Herbie Mann

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
It is probably true that no single LP could definitively sum up all of the directions that Herbie Mann explored in the swingin' '60s, but this one -- part of a sprawling 1970 Atlantic Jazz Anthology series and transferred intact onto CD -- could have done a more thorough job.
