The Four Freshmen were the most innovative and imitated jazz vocal quartet ever to grace vinyl. Innovative because of their unique concept of singing open harmony, moving the third and fifth notes of a chord an octave higher or lower, or using ninths and elevenths while dropping root notes of a chord. In August 1954 the Freshmen issued their first LP, titled Voices in Modern. It gave birth to their next chart single, the beautiful Mood Indigo, which reached number 24 on November 27, 1954. In 1955 the group did a Jay Livingston-Ray Evans song called How Can I Tell Her for the film Lucy Gallant starring Charlton Heston and Jane Wyman.
