iTunes Review

Part of Blue Note’s 75th-anniversary celebration, Enjoy the View features Hutcherson—one of the label’s stalwart artists from the ‘60s and ‘70s—as well as some very heavy company. The much-celebrated David Sanborn has been leaning more toward straight jazz and old-school R&B in recent years, often with organist DeFrancesco providing plenty of heat. Add the august Hart on drums to the mix, and you have a quartet of savvy veterans who are each comfortable in any situation. Refreshingly, the quartet here eschew standards or covers in favor of originals from everyone but Hart. Sanborn’s noir-ish “Delia” and DeFrancesco’s jaunty bop “Don Is” give the listener a sense of the fertile and free-ranging common ground the quartet occupies. Elsewhere, the groove is positively greasy on Hutcherson’s “Teddy” with DeFrancesco and Sanborn both going deep, and the dreamy “Little Flower” shimmers in ballad mode. Sometimes things don’t go as well as they were drawn up on paper; that definitely isn't the case here.

Can't Wait...

For the full smoothness to be revealed! David Sanborn is the coolest cat around with a horn. Saw him in the Chi this year with Joey and they rocked the house!

Sanborn is the weakest link...

He tries hard, but still stuck in the smooth jazz style of blowing. Outmatched by the other players.

Refreshing, Graceful, Highly Crafted and Fine Jazz

It is a Gem, Masterfully brought together by Musicians at the peak of their Art. Here and now Jazz, for the new to recognize as sound skills in music. It has met all our expectations as an instant Classic Blue Note Album. Excellent work!

Easily one of jazz's greatest vibraphonists, Bobby Hutcherson epitomized his instrument in relation to the era in which he came of age the way Lionel Hampton did with swing or Milt Jackson with bop. He wasn't as well-known as those two forebears, perhaps because he started out in less accessible territory when he emerged in the '60s playing cerebral, challenging modern jazz that often bordered on avant-garde. Along with Gary Burton, the other seminal vibraphone talent of the '60s, Hutcherson helped...
