Vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson and tenor saxophonist Harold Land co-led important quintets from 1967 to 1971. Released in 1968, Total Eclipse was Hutcherson’s first Blue Note album to feature Land (a fellow Southern Californian), along with pianist Chick Corea (on loan from Miles Davis’ quintet), double bassist Reggie Johnson, and drummer Joe Chambers.
