Herbie Mann - Just Wailin'

This recording emphasizes (although does not stick exclusively to) the blues. The sextet has impressive players (flutist Herbie Mann, Charlie Rouse on tenor, guitarist Kenny Burrell, pianist Mal Waldron, bassist George Joyner and drummer Art Taylor) and the material (originals by Waldron, Burrell and Calvin Massey in addition to a brief "Jumpin' With Symphony Sid") is reasonably challenging but the musicians never really come together as a group. The straightahead jam session has its strong moments and, as long as one keeps their expectations low, the music will be enjoyable despite the lack of major sparks.

APUNTE CRÍTICO, CON PERMISO DE TODOS USTEDES: EXCELENTE TRABAJO DE RECOPILACIÓN DE EDICIONES JAPONESAS (MUY AL DÍA) Y MUY DISCUTIBLES EDICIONES DE FRESH SOUND DE BARCELONA, PERO TODO EN PLAN ELITISTA CON PASSWORDS QUE HAY QUE INTRODUCIR VEINTE VECES Y ENLACES A UN INFIERNO DE PUBLICIDAD ... HAZLO MÁS FÁCIL PARA TODOS, YA QUE TE PONES A COMPARTIR.

GRACIAS
