Herbie Mann - Memphis two-step [1971]




   This record is from Herbie's soul and rock period (1971) and also explores some of the spacey, textural territory that is so present on "Stone Flute" from the previous year. "Acapulco Rain" and his rendition of David Crosby's "Guinnevere" stand as some of the best spacey jazz to come from that era with lots of reverb-laden flute, inter-weaving, intricate guitar parts, sizzling cymbals, lovely textures from Roy Ayers and an overall mellow vibe. The funky pieces, particularly the title track with Coryell's scorching solo, also shine. Outstanding.
