Herbie Mann

Real Name:
Herbert Jay Solomon
Profile:
American jazz flutist, tenor saxophonist, clarinetist & bass clarinetist. He branched out to latin jazz, reggae and disco, to name some of the styles he explored. Mann also established Embryo Records (1969-1977) and Kokopelli Records (mid. '90s).
Born : April 16, 1930 in Brooklyn, New York.
Died : July 01, 2003 in Pecos, New Mexico.

Herbie began getting involved with the newly emerging disco scene when he covered LTG Exchange's "Waterbed". It's a very funky instrumental with a great bassline. From this album he also covered "Hijack" by Barrabas. This became popular in the early disco scene in the UK and was one of the very first 12" promos ever pressed in Europe.

Another disco recording was his cover of Celi Bee's "Superman" theme which peaked at #26 on the US Billboard charts. For this album Herbie worked with New York disco producer Patrick Adams and together they wrote the jazz-funk classic "Etagui".

Someone has changed all of the appearances in groups (Herbie Mann's Nonet, Herbie Mann Trio, etc.) to his "real name" Herbert Solomon, which has removed those groups from the "In Groups" list above, which means you can't find them in his discography. Solomon is an alias; he did not appear in any of these records under that name. If you look at Herbie Mann's Nonet, it says "Herbie Solomon" is the member, but if you click on it, you get his sole writing credit, and you have to click through again to get to the Herbie Mann page. This is terrible and needs to be fixed. Herbert Solomon is not a musician (except for that one credit); Herbie Mann is. That's the name on the records.

Herbie Mann is one of jazz's most versatile flautists. It's amazing the range of music he played over the decades, from disco to bossa nova the mann has done it!

Herbie Mann is underrated.
His LP's feature great lineups, normally featuring strong lead guitarists too.
Larry Coryell, Duane Allman, Cornell Dupree, Mick Taylor, Sonny Sharrock, to name a few.
Rock encyclopedias fail to mention him. Too much flute?
Jazz publications fail to mention him also. Too much smokin' electric guitar? Sonny Sharrock's experimental guitar too heavy??
I am pretty sure alot of people dig Mann though, his records sold well.
