Overheard the other night at Nogglestead:
This is the best disco flute album I’ve ever heard!
I am referring to Herbie Mann’s Super Mann.
I’ve got a couple of Herbie Mann’s more straightforward jazz, but this disc, which I picked up for $.99 this weekend, is a singularity of sorts. It has attained an infinity of 1978 coolness.
Here’s a taste–“Jisco Dazz”:
I defy you to find anything better, or anything that does not appear on the soundtrack to Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy that comes close.
