From the All Music Guide:
The Woody Herman Herds of the late '60s remained vibrant units, although turnover in personnel was somewhat disruptive. These two sessions recorded live in 1967 (one in San Francisco, the other in New York -- hence the title) miss some of the star quality of earlier years, but there are versions of timeless classics such as "I Remember Clifford," "Cousins," and "The Preacher," plus a short reworking of "Four Brothers" called "Four Brothers Revisited." The first session includes Bill Watrous on trombone, Steve Marcus on tenor sax, and Joe Temperly on bari sax, while the second band has Bill Chase on trumpet and Nat Pierce on piano. The short recording time does not detract from the solid performances of the kind to which Herman fans were accustomed, even if some of the names of players may be unfamiliar. Like other great bandleaders, Herman knew how to bring out the best in his bands. While he did not contribute any of the tunes to this recording, his mark is felt on every composition, and he performs on clarinet and alto saxophone, plus soprano saxophone. This is by no means indispensable Herd music, but it is nonetheless a fine example of where Herman was holding in the late '70s. Admirers of this big-band giant will not be disappointed.

1 Tomorrow's Blues Today 8:49

The Sound of Building Coffins
by Louis Maistros

"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
