Mann, Herbie

See Through Spirits
Sealed 1985 Original. Small Saw Cut. “Herbie Mann's Return To The Atlantic Label In 1985 Was Only A One-Shot Deal That Got Some Airplay But Not Enough Sales To Convince The Now-Corporate Label To Retain Its Onetime Jazz Cornerstone. Actually This Is One Of The Better Mann Albums Aimed At A Contemporary Market, Mostly Of A Mild Funk Mindset With A Few So-So Guest Vocals Yet Always Intelligent And Musical, With Mann Flying In Customarily Fluent Form. The Best Track Is A Marvelously Atmospheric, Almost Lost-Sounding Treatment Of Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues," Outfitted With An Irresistible Repeated Electronic Counter-Theme. As A Bonus, The Latinish Leadoff Track Features Guest Appearances From Once And Future Mann Associates David "Fathead" Newman And Dave Valentin. Except For A Duo Project With Valentin For GRP, This Would Be Mann's Last Album For A Big Label - And It Is Well Worth Searching Out.” Richard S. Ginell, AMG.
