  1. Woody Herman. Woodrow Charles "Woody" Herman (May 16, – October 29, ), was an American jazz clarinetist, alto and soprano saxophonist, singer, and big band leader. Leading various groups called "The Herd," Herman was one of the most popular of the s and '40s bandleaders. His bands often played music that was experimental for.
  2. Early life and career. Herman was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on May 16, His parents were Otto and Myrtle (Bartoszewicz) Herman. His mother was Polish. His father had a deep love for show business and this influenced Woody Herman at an early age.

  4. After creating a video tribute to Broadway shows inspired by Woody Herman's Columbia LP Broadway My Way [reissued on CD as Columbia Sony CS ], the editorial staff at JazzProfiles thought it might be fun to reprise this feature about Graham Carter's loving tribute to Woody and to add the newly developed video at the conclusion of this piece.
  5. This album would mark the end of Phil's tenure with the Herd, and that alone makes it worth buying (just catch his brilliant solo on "My Favorite Things"). Of course there are other reasons for making this album part of your collection, starting with the selections. The fifties and sixties were a golden age for Broadway .
  6. First time on CD for this album by Big Band leader Woody Herman (who was also a fine clarinetist, saxophonist and vocalist!) and his Swinging Herd featuring Bill Chase on trumpet. Always wanting to approach modern music and not concentrate on his past, Herman and company interpret songs that made their debut in well-known Broadway plays/5(9).
