FOUR FRESHMEN

FOUR FRESHMEN (THE)

Gruppo vocale nato nel 1948 per iniziativa di Ross e Don Barbour, Bob Flanigan, Ken Errair, compagni di corso all’Arthur Jordan Conservary of Music di Indianapolis. Essi hanno deciso di mettere su un quartetto vocale e strumentale. Hanno iniziato ad esibirsi localmente con molto successo. Il loro debutto discografico è stato sponsorizzato da Stan Kenton. Nel 1952 la loro interpretazione del brano “It’s A Blue Words”, ha avuto un grande successo e quindi è arrivata la scrittura al “Jerry Wald’s Studio Club” di Hollywood e nel 1953 sono incoronati dal Down Beat il miglior gruppo vocale. Il gruppo ha continuato la sua attività negli anni non ottenendo però mai i vecchi successi. Nel 1986 nell’ultima registrazione la formazione era composta da Bob Flanigan, Autio Goodman, Mike Beisner e Rod Henley. Il gruppo ha avuto come arrangiatori Pete Rugolo e Dick Reynold, ed ha rappresentato quanto di più moderno ed avanzato nella tradizione dei gruppi vocali americani. Con la loro perfetta intesa, con le loro delicate armonie dai suoni intensi formavano un vero e proprio blocco strumentale. Attivi ancora negli anni ’80, si esibiscono con un repertorio debitamente aggiornato nei locali di Las Vegas e nei grandi alberghi di San Francisco.
