The Four Freshmen is an American male vocal quartet that blends open-harmonic jazz arrangements with the big band vocal group sounds of The Modernaires (Glenn Miller), The Pied Pipers (Tommy Dorsey), and The Mel-Tones (Mel Tormé, Artie Shaw), founded in the barbershop tradition. The Four Freshmen is considered a vocal band because the singers accompany themselves on guitar, horns, bass, and drums, among other instrumental configurations. The group was founded in 1948, and reached its peak popularity in the mid-1950s. Their album Four Freshmen and 5 Trombones "set the standard for modern jazz vocal groups" and reached number . .

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. They nearly lost the job since the owner had never heard jazz chords, but his daughter had a crush on Hal and saved the day actually the week. While playing the Midwest lounge circuit they shifted their instrumentation, with Hal and Bob alternating bass playing and brass solos and Ross moving from piano to drums while Don remained on guitar. The February 1956 Four Freshmen and Five Trombones LP set a standard for modern jazz vocal groups; it reached number six nationally and resided on the charts for over eight months.
