Herbie Mann: “Comin’ Home Baby”

7 Jan

Born Herbert Solomon in Brooklyn, Herbie Mann started in the kitchen, banging pots and pans. His mother thought the energy might be better directed into music. Mann was more proficient on the sax, but when a band was forming in the early 50s around then little-known vocalist Carmen McRae, and it needed a flute player, a career was born. Died in 2003 at 73.
