This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out of print Herbie Mann LPs: Bird in a Silver Cage and Fire Island, originally issued in 1976 and 1977, respectively. These 13 jazz-pop tracks include "Summer Strut," "Fly Robin Fly," and "Bird in a Silver Cage." This is an enjoyable reissue from Mann's massive catalog on Atlantic Records, but most listeners would be better served with one of the many compilations in print. ~ Al Campbell
