Our jazz-oriented channel partners over at Revivalist just hipped us to this amazing Bobby Hutcherson project, here’s what they said:
With upwards of 25 solo records as well as spots with the likes of Donald Byrd, Herbie Hancock, Chico Freeman, Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan and so many more under his belt, it is safe to say vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson has made his mark on both his instrument and the jazz music scene. You might be saying, “Well that’s nice that he made a mark in jazz, but what else?” Look no further than The Jazz JoustersMirrors which features remixed versions of solely Bobby Hutcherson vibes samples. The project features a great integration of Hutcherson samples with more of a trip-hop or hip-hop-jazz feel.
