Artist Portrait

Woody Herman And His Woodchoppers


A selection of musicians from Woody Herman And His Orchestra and Woody Herman & The Herd, which first originated shortly in 1938 for some recording. In 1946 it was built by musicians of the first Herd. The Woodchoppers were a parallel band project not directly bound to the Herds and mainly put together for recording purposes. The Woodchoppers were a similar project as the earlier Woody Herman's Four Chips and were simply a generic name for any small band within the Woody Herman band organization.
