Once again, Oslo Jazz Festival has the great pleasure of inviting legendary American vocal group The Four Freshmen to the festival.
Today, The Four Freshmen consists of Tommy Boynton, Stein Malvey, Jon Gaines and Bob Ferreira. The group was founded all the way back in 1948 by Bob Flanigan, Don Barbour, Ross Barbour and Hal Kratzsch. The band's vocal harmonies set the standard for vocal groups in the 50s, and greatly inspired bands like The Hi-Lo's, Manhattan Transfer, Singers Unlimited and New York Voices. Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys often mention The Four Freshmen as one of his favorite groups, and the primary source for Beach Boys' own vocal harmonies.
