Legacy

For many music enthusiasts, The Four
Freshmen need no introduction. Starting as
college students in 1948, the young group won
fame with their renditions of “Graduation Day,
“Poinciana,” “Day by Day” and “It’s a Blue
World.” Stan Kenton played a major role in
advancing the early career of The Four
Freshmen, and their unique sound strongly
influenced other vocal groups, such as Manhattan
Transfer, Take 6 and the Beach Boys.
Now, more than 65 years later, the names and faces have changed a
few times, but the harmony and legendary sound of The Four Freshmen
continue to fascinate audiences worldwide.
Today’s Four Freshmen ensemble is considered by many to be the
greatest jazz vocal group of all time. The current quartet consists of
highly educated, musically diverse young men who provide their own
accompaniment. They not only preserve The Freshmen sound, they
enhance it with their youth, vitality and talent, giving new treatments to
the Great American Songbook. They continue to tour worldwide with
sold-out audiences, sharing their unique brand of magnetism, stage
presence and approach to The Four Freshmen standards.
