Herbie Mann - Push Push (1971) (mp3, 320kbps)

Outstanding groove. Awsome chops. Killer chest hair. A different kind of fusion - Jazz flute meets Duane Allman in Memphis. Lots of ingredients, but it all comes out just right. Mann had a special knack for putting the right people in the right places to suit the musical vision. His idea of mixing a Stax-style Memphis groove with the improv of jazz... well, it just worked. This is the best example, but there are plenty of others that you should check out from this same era. Other guests on this release include Al Jackson, Jr. and Donald Duck Dunn - both from Booker T. and the M.G.s.
