The Four Freshmen is an American male vocal quartet that blends open-harmonic jazz arrangements with the big band vocal group sounds of The Modernaires (Glenn Miller), The Pied Pipers (Tommy Dorsey), and The Mel-Tones (Mel Tormé, Artie Shaw), founded in the barbershop tradition. The Four Freshmen is considered a vocal band because the singers accompany themselves on guitar, horns, bass, and drums, among other instrumental configurations.

Voices in Latin/The Freshman Year. Bob Flanigan, who sings the high tenor line, also handles the trombone solos. Ross's brother, Don Barbour, plays the quiet and unobtrusive guitar lines. No wonder Brian Wilson fell in love with the Freshmen sound & channeled the inspiration he received from it, to influence the Beach Boy 's sound. This is a wonderful 2 album cd, beautifully recorded, packaged & priced. Nothing less than perfection throughout.

The Four Freshmen are one of the most unique and arguably most influential of all the male vocal groups who emerged in American pop music during the 20th Century. In fact it is hard to imagine how Brian Wilson and his Beach Boys or Frankie Valli and his Four Seasons would have emerged in the early 1960s, if not for them being influenced by The Four Freshmen.
