Description
One of the greatest big band leaders in the history of jazz, Woody Herman created the musical context for exhilarating things to happen. This sampler CD presents 12 of those occasions.

"Herman himself takes clarinet solos on only six of the numbers, but that is compensated for by appearances from Stan Getz (on 'The Dolphin' and 'What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?'), Woody Shaw, Dizzy Gillespie, Slide Hampton, Flip Phillips ('Perdido') and Al Cohn. Some of Herman's earlier hits are revisited (including 'Four Brothers' and 'Lemon Drop'); the emphasis overall is on jazz standards. Of the soloists from Herman's big band itself, tenor saxophonist Frank Tiberi ('Central Park West'), baritonist Mike Brignola, and trombonist John Fedchock (featured on "Round Midnight') have the best spots."óAll Music Guide

"For a half-century, from the mid-1930s until the mid-'80s, Woody Herman was the leader of a big band: first the Band That Plays the Blues, then Woody Herman's Herd, then the Second Herd, and in time a succession of Herds that eventually defied enumeration. There's plenty of room for argument, but a good case can be made that the First and Second Herds were the best of the 'white bands' Ö superior to those of Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey and Claude Thornhill, if a clear notch below the great bands of Duke Ellington and Count Basie; but however one chooses to rate them, Herman's orchestras were of indisputable importance."óWashington Post
