Cary Ginell, author of Mr. B: The Music and Life of Billy Eckstine and Walk Tall, recently met up with the folks at Inquiry (again) to discuss The Evolution of Mann!

Onstage and Backstage

 

About the Book  More than any other musician, Herbie Mann was responsible for establishing the flute as an accepted jazz instrument. In The Evolution of Mann: Herbie Mann and the Flute in Jazz, Cary Ginell explores Mann’s fascinating career, which spanned five decades, from his beginnings in a tiny Brooklyn nightclub to his appearances on international stages. “I want to be as synonymous with the flute as Benny Goodman is for the clarinet,” Mann was fond of saying.  By the time he died of prostate caner in 2003, he had fulfilled his desires.
