Product Description

CD Description

High quality Blue Note reissue from Paris based label Heavenly Sweetness. This LP features quality sound taken directly from the original master tapes, 180g vinyl, heavy cardboard sleeve and original artwork. 'Stick-Up!' stands out as one of the hardest-swinging albums that Bobby Hutcherson made for Blue Note, due in no small part to the presence of Billy Higgins on drums. This 1966 recording, which also features Joe Henderson, is the first recorded meeting of the vibist and pianist McCoy Tyner. Personnel: Bobby Hutcherson (vibes), Joe Henderson (tenor saxophone), McCoy Tyner (piano), Herbie Lewis (bass), Billy Higgins (drums)

5.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs up! 2 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
From the fractured, angular momentum behind Ornette's 'Una Muy Bonita'(an ice-cold shower for Cal Tjader fans)to the groovy urgency of '8/4 Beat' this is a consistently exciting album. 'Verse'is extraordinary - with Henderson performing what must be one of his most searing recorded solos (up there with 'Inner Urge' - which has a very similar feel)and Tyner also incendiary. There's a terrific tension throughout this session between infectious rhythmic drive and out-there improvisation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good vibes 27 Jan 2001
By Tyler Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Bobby has it all together on this 1966 release. His vibes ring like bells, his band is tight, and the compositions are stellar. This is great mainstream Blue Note stuff, but the work is challenging and it makes for rewarding listening.
Three tracks stand out for me. The angular and rhythmically unpredictable "8/4" features fine interplay between Hutcherson, tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson and pianist McCoy Tyner. "Summer Nights" is a lovely ballad that displays Bobby's lucid tone and lyrical touch. It also offers a good early look at the way he meshed his sound with Tyner's. The two would go on to develop that partnership in the '80s and '90s. "Verse," which Hutcherson says in the liner notes refers to the literary sense of the word, is indeed an aural poem and one of satisfyingly controlled intensity. It starts out slowly but builds in power with Henderson delivering a particularly inspired performance.
This is Blue Note at its best: great musicians playing with fire and inspiration on well-crafted material. Never a dull moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Obviously Excellent 16 July 1999
By Frank Bock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Stick-Up! is excellent and fun by just looking at the cover! The band here is quite interesting... Billy Higgins on drums with McCoy Tyner on piano and Joe Henderson on tenor sax. Bobby Hutcherson is fantastic on vibes, starting out with Ornette Coleman's catchy Una Muy Bonita and moving through five more originals, which is different than the equally excellent (and different) Patterns where he contributes no songs. And unlike Patterns (which really is excellent, check it out!!) which is more brooding and introspective, Stick-Up! is more fast paced (and fun) hard bob. This is yet another un-hyped, underselling, world-class album with world-class playing. Highly Highly charged and recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars An album of "transformation" and "transportation"! 29 April 2001
By Blake S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is an underrated classic. "Una Muy Bonita" is the ultimate in cool swank: it swaggers out of your speakers and transforms your soul through its rhythmic beat and fun feel. "Summer Nights" really struck me as well: this pituresque tune can transport you to a quiet moment when you've drawn away from the crowd for a moment to have a quick smoke by yourself...you can hear the rain falling at night and the cocktail party going on in the background all at once. "Stick-Up" made me a fan of Bobby Hutcherson. You can waste your time borrowing this from the library to see if you'll like it, but falling for this album is only a matter of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bobby is tight 11 Aug 2000
By Daniel McCarthy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard this album, the first thing that I wanted to do was to go and practice. As a vibe player myself, Bobby's album inspired me to want to become the best player that I can be. I still use this album for inspiration when I need it. I would highly recommend this album to any jazz fan. This is one of my 10 desert island picks!

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent 8 May 2010
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The thing I love about Bobby Hutchenson--well, let me begin counting, on all toes and fingers. But what comes to mind is his willingness to butterfly and bee sting around the universe music, doing whatever the hell he wants, whenever the hell he wants.

Now if your reading, you are probably hip to Bobby or will be very soon. But if you are just getting Bobbyed, let me give you a few scoops

Bobby came up during the 1960s and was the go to vibes player for Eric Dolphy, Jackie Mcclean, Andrew Hill--have I named the whole Blue Note roster yet? Did some Impulse work, too. Archie Shepp. Bobby got around

He did some free form of his own and if you want to start with this, check out Dialogue.

Then, as if to throw mallets at genre, he cuts an album calledSan Francisco with a sax player named Harold Land--could have been a 1969 Quincy Jones R&B soundtrack, and just when you think the free jazzer has become the blues stylist, he turns around, and makes the operatic Now! with Headless Hero Gene McDaniels.

I have a little confession to make. I have JUST finished downloading Stick Up and am burning it to CD right now. I am going to play it, but I have so much faith in Bobby that I am sure I am going to write a glowing review. So if you'll just slide down a bit, we'll see if I am right. See you in just a bit

Well, here we are: Stick Up only confirms my thesis about Bobby--a year after the 1965 avant Dialouge, Stick Up wields back to hard bop. Here, it is not as much about interaction and nuance as speed and good old fashioned chops. With Billy Higgins and McCoy Tyner--fresh from 'Trane and going back to basics, this hard bop flies wonderfully.

What strikes me here is Hutcherson's ability to work with and around a piano player. Often in jazz these two instruments are felt to be interchangeable: have one and the other gets in the way. But Tyner had developed, in free flights with Coltrane, an open style that actually reminds me of vibes playing. His keys actually have a chime, and the way he works here with Hutch is like trading two balls, same shape, different color. Amazing work'

And when masters of the Avant Gaurde return to pre-1960 forms, the form is not exactly the same. Stick up is, as I listen, essentially hard bop, but listen to the little timing clusters, small heads like twisted nails, and the increased freedom in the solo sections. The influence of free jazz, perhaps at peak power in 1966 with 'Trane still alive and with a brand new band, is clear if subtle/

Add this to a more traditional swing rhythm section, and the synergy is incredible.

But this perfect stew is a product of throwing out boundaries, and from my above ravings about Bobby, who would expect anything less.
