The Four Freshmen continue to bring their unique brand of vocal harmony to audiences worldwide. The legendary sound that began in 1948 with Bob, Don, Ross and Hal continues on in the 21st century. . . Brian, Curtis, Vince and Bob have been performing together since 2001. Whether performing with a full symphonic orchestra, in front of a big band, or playing self-contained, their unmistakable sound continues to thrill audiences all over the world.
New lineups of the group have continued to perform into the 21st century, however, and are considered an artistically valid ensemble — in 2000 the Four Freshmen were voted Vocal Group of the Year by Down Beat magazine’s readers. And in 2001, no less a label than Mosaic Records — the company that issues complete catalogs of jazz legends going back to the 1930s, in deluxe packaging — released a multi-CD box of the Four Freshmen’s complete 1950s recordings, proudly (and even defiantly, given the label’s catalog) proclaiming the quartet’s validity as a jazz outfit. ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide
