Bobby Hutcherson : Live 1977.
If you've ever been here before, the chances are you'll know that i'm an obsessive fan of Bobby Hutcherson. The guy has never put a foot wrong, and has the touch, and finesse, class and style of a pure genius. Never more so was this evident, than on the album, Blue Note Meets the L.A Philharmonic. Arranged by Dale Oehler, responsible for among others, the killer album Waiting, and includes all the players from that gem. Eddie Marshall, Manny Boyd, Bobbye Porter Hall, George Cables and James Leary who wrote my all time favourite track, Prime Thought.
These 4 live tracks are all sublime, but for me, Bobby's solo in Slow Change, is simply prefect. If you've never heard these, go get it, now!
