The Beat Goes On

The Beat Goes On by Herbie Mann
Released: Jul 1967
Label: Rhino Atlantic
Generally forgotten today, this was a hit in 1967. Herbie Mann has the stones to mix material from commercials (the Alka Seltzer jingle opens the LP), pop songs (the Sonny & Cher title track) and movie themes (Maurice Jarre's "Paris is Burning") then turn it all into soulful jazz that mods could dance to.
