Another musician lucky enough to be born into a musical family, Herb’s mother played piano for silent movies in Hollywood. A friend of the family brought him his first alto sax at age 8 and two years later he was also playing the clarinet. At his school Dorsey High he played in the band alongside future sax and flute genius Eric Dolphy. By the age of 16 Herb began his professional career playing alto in the Joe Venuti band. By 21 he had heard the music of Charlie Parker and had moved to New York to play with, amongst others, Claude Thornhill and Paul Desmond. Herb was influenced by Charlie Parker, Benny Carter and Johnny Hodges and would go on to play with countless great jazz men during his long and illustrious career. A few names to mention would be Chet Baker, Benny Goodman, Clifford Brown, Billy May, Shorty Rogers, Max Roach and Quincy Jones. Along the way Herb also learnt to play the piccolo, flute, oboe and English horn.
