Four Freshmen, The

Formed in 1948, the close-knit harmonies of The Four Freshmen were a hugely popular draw over the next decade and a half.

Founder member Bob Flanigan’s high tenor was a defining characteristic on hits like Mood Indigo and Day by Day, with the group’s lush spread of jazz, pop and barbershop styles proving a key influence on (among others) Brian Wilson and The Beach Boys.

Bob Flanigan passed away in 2011. He was 85.
