Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Glory of Love is an album by flutist Herbie Mann released on the CTI label featuring performances recorded at Rudy Van Gelder’s studio in 1967.

“Flutist Herbie Mann is backed by a large rhythm section and a small horn section on this Creed Taylor-produced A&M set (which has been reissued on CD). Actually the most interesting aspect of the R&B-oriented date (which includes such songs as “Hold on, I’m Comin’,” “House of the Risin’ Sun” and “Unchain My Heart”) is that the up-and-coming flutist Hubert Laws is matched with Mann on several tracks.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
