The Third Herd




Musically the Third Herd (particularly in the early days) was a modification of the Second. The well-established Four Brothers sound of the saxophones was retained and as always the band was strong in brass and rhythm but the active book was less “way out” than the one offered by the earlier edition. This can easily be gathered by listening to the music played at the Hollywood Palladium during the long engagement there in the late spring of 1951 and presented on this CD.
