A seminal figure in the New York Jazz scene of the 1960s and 1970s, flautist Herbie Mann pursued authenticity in a way that led him to many corners of the musical world. Memphis Underground was recorded in Memphis with Roy Ayers, the young vibraphonist who would make his own mark on the jazz-funk landscape in the 70s with Ubiquity. It also features Larry Coryell and Sonny Sharrock, two outstanding rock-inclined guitarists, and there's backing from the Memphis Rhythm Section.
