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.
Cary Ginell is an award-winning author, annotator, discographer, and music historian whose expertise encompasses a wide variety of musical genres. He has been honored five times by the Association for Recorded Sound Collections, is a recipient of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award, and was nominated for a Grammy. Mr. B is his seventh book.
