A true american gentleman in Hamburg





Quite a few years back this LP opened my ears to the Big Band Sound. That doesn't mean this is a typical Big Band LP. Have a look at the lineup and you know it's not (there are lots of Rhythm Combination & Brass guys involved). It is in fact something inbetween and it features the lovely voice of Mark Murphy.

cheers,
Basso

Hi Basso,
I’ve linked to your page in my post of Mark Murphy – “Mark II” (1974).
All the best,

I've read the sad news that Herb Geller died a few days ago. I don't know if your link is still working but i certainly recommend this album.
Cheers & thanks for opening my ears to a lot of interesting music.
