Back by popular demand #2



Bobby Hutcherson and Harold Land.
Recorded live in Hamburg, Germany 1969/1970.

Been saving the best till last, with this Dynamite set from Bobby Hutcherson.
Four tracks from 2 different dates. Infomation for these is a little hard to come by, with the pianists changing from Hal Galper on the '69 set, to Stanley Cowell on the 1970 set.

Oleo 11:58
Four 10:39
Recorded 5th May 1969.

Same Shame/Blow up 36:00
Oleo 7:17
Recorded 19th August 1970.

The recording is not as polished as the previous Hutcherson posts, and for me, all the better for it. Needless to say, all 4 tracks are incredible, but you need to hear Same Shame. 36 Minutes of of pure jazz heaven.

Forgot to mention, the excellent artwork is by that man Greg again.

Stone Cold, Solid Gold!

Yeh, thanks. This is really fine.
It also sounds fine, I agree with you about the lack of polish being better.

Wow! Just discovered your fantastic site, and already groovin' to the various Bobby Hutcheron and Harold Land Quintet live sets. What an amazing band this was, especially impressed by Land's playing throughout. Wondering if you will be reupping the Live at Juan Le Pin, Antibes, 25th July 1969 (aka Blow Up)set, as the old links don't work anymore. Thank you so much for all the great tunes...

What a beautiful way of ending the year! Bobby Hutcherson & Harold Land were one of those jazz teams made in heaven. I'm looking after every note they played together. Your place is tremendous. Thks for sharing such golden fruit with us. Hope to see the Antibes, 25th July 1969 set back again too. Would be a second Christmas for music lovers. Let's groove that fucking 2012 year, man!
