This is one of the last recordings of American trumpeter Robert Leo "Bobby" Hackett (Rhode Island, 1915-1976). During the 30s and 40s he worked with the bands of Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller and Casa Loma Orchestra. He later worked with dozens of artists (Teddy Wilson, Jack Teagarden, Eddie Condon, Tony Bennett, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, etc..) and from the 50s until his death he continued acting and rec ording with several small groups. The repertoire of ten themes of the album is dominated by Dixieland and swing standards.
Slow-building and soulful vibes from Bobby Hutcherson – working here in set of tracks with a heavy influence from John Coltrane – including some key classics from the Coltrane songbook, plus a few standards that have had famous readings by The Great One! Hutcherson's vibes ring out with a sense of majesty that we don't remember before – carried along by some great work from the rest of the group – Anthony Wilson on guitar, Joe Gilman on piano, Glenn Richman on bass, and Eddie Marshall on drums – players who hit a sweet modal groove on some of the best numbers, with a quality that almost takes us back to some of our favorite Hutcherson moments of the 70s. Titles include "Wise One", "Like Sonny", "Equinox", "Spiritual", "Dear Lord", "All Or Nothing At All", "Nancy", and "Aisha".
