Four Freshmen And 5 Trombones was the first album The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson bought, and remains an exquisite vocal jazz record.
The Beach Boys originally emulated the sound of the pre-rock vocal group, The Four Freshman, who famously fused jazz with rock in the 50s.
At the dawn of rock’n’roll, rhythm’n’blues vocal groups from street corners across America dominated the teenage-dream world of radio.
The Five Satins' 'In The Still Of The Nite,' a hit in both 1956 and 1960, later became one of the Beach Boys' '15 Big Ones.'
