Woody Herman & His Orchestra: 1956

by Woody Herman & His Orchestra



Woody Herman's Third Herd was in its later years when it appeared at the Lagoon in Salt Lake City in July 1956. This two-CD set of previously unreleased material features the Herd performing live during a two-day period. At the time, the key soloists included trombonist Bill Harris (a veteran of the First and Second Herds); trumpeter Dick Collins; Richie Kamuca, Arno Marsha, and Bob Hardaway on tenors; pianist Vince Guaraldi; and vibraphonist Victor Feldman. Playing arrangements by Nat Pierce, Manny Albam, Ralph Burns, and Neal Hefti, this was a swinging (if greatly underrated and largely overlooked) edition of Herman's Orchestra. The 41 jazz-oriented selections included on this two-fer give one a generous sampling of the band's book and should be of great interest to Woody Herman collectors.
