The romantic side of Bobby Hutcherson,
This review is from: For Sentimental Reasons (Audio CD)
For Sentimental Reasons, recorded November 2006, is a beautiful collection of ballads masterly played by a quartet featuring great Bobby Hutcherson on vibraphone, Renee Rosnes on piano, Dwayne Burno on double-bass, Al Foster on drums. Hutcherson has always the central role, introducing themes and improvising, superbly interacting with the other musicians, especially with the piano. The mood of the music is definitely romantic and calm, warm and heartening, perfect for a tender evening with your spouse. However don't mistake this recording for easy listening or cliché. This is a really inspired and passionate work of real mainstream jazz from a great musician no longer worried of defining music directions, now playing for the fun of playing, more relaxed than ever. A real pleasure to listen to again and again, thanks also to the very high recording quality.
