In Japan, evaluation of Woody Herman Orchestra seem to be low.Typically,Ellington and Basie are popular with jazz fan.Woody Herman seems unpopular.”Early autumn” known in performance of Stan Getz has been popular.
I also like the Second Herd, but recently I hear First Herd hear well.They played blues until 1942.From 1943 onward they changed band color by playing bop.However, the leader did not change the style of clarinet and scat.
I love the rhythm section of this time. Dave Tough (ds) Chubby Jackson(b)
