Bobby Hutcherson – Patterns


All of Bobby Hutcherson’s late ’60s Blue Note dates are excellent examples of superior ensemble interaction coupled with fascinating compositions. 1968′s Patterns features the vibraphonist leading a quintet capable of tremendous textural changes and near-classical sophistication. The group offers its interpretation of six spellbinding pieces (plus one extra take of the title track), most of which were composed by drummer Joe Chambers. On this must-have session Stanley Cowell (piano), Reggie Workman (bass) and saxophonist James Spaulding (who also adds beautiful colors on flute) round out the group.

Personnel: Bobby Hutcherson (vibraphone); James Spaulding (alto saxophone, flute); Stanley Cowell (piano); Reggie Workman (bass); Joe Chambers (drums).
