Here is Woody Herman Big Band – Four Brothers
December 21. 2015
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)
