Description:Bethlehem Rare Reissue Series!

Bethlehem Records was established in New York by a Swiss-born Gustav Wildi in 1953, and released a wide variety of high quality jazz albums before it was sold in 1963. Not long after establishing the headquarters, Wildi opened an office in California and began recording on both coasts, which greatly contributed to the variety and depth of its cagalogue.

Herbie Mann Plays is one of the flutist's early leader albums, recorded when he was 24 years old. Mann pitched an idea for this album as part of Bethlehem's East Coast Jazz Series, and took his band mates to the studio in December, 1954. To feature the soft sound of the flute, Mann formed a simple quartet with guitar, bass and drums. The tracks from this first session (Tracks 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 11 on this CD) was released as a 10-inch LP East Coast Jazz #4. In 1956, when Bethlehem decided to re-release it as a 12-inch LP, Mann recorded four more tracks with a different set of musicians but with the same configuration. This reissue CD contains three bonus tracks which were not included in either of the original LPs.

Recorded on December 14, 1954 and 1956. Mono. This reissue CD was released in Japan by Solid Records in 2013.
