The Woody Herman band was one of the most popular groups in the world during the 1940s. It combined the beautiful sound of the leader on clarinet, alto sax, and vocals with the innumerable talents of the group members, both playing and arranging. Many of them went on to become big names in jazz. This edition compiles the complete original LP The Three Herds (CL592), which was Herman’s own selection of some of his hits from the period of 1945 to 1954. Fourteen extra tracks from the same period have been added as a bonus.

Includes 20-page booklet

Down Beat original review: The 3 Herds

“Another first-rate George Avakian production, this is ‘a survey of all three of the history-making Herman Herds from 1945-54’. Woody’s own warm, swinging honesty and humor as a person have always been reflected in the music of the bands he leads. They and he are among the best things that have ever happened to jazz.” (Nat Henfoff)
