What a great collaboration! To my knowledge this is not a working band. It appears the musicians got together only for this recording and will not be making live appearances. If they did tour I would love to see them. Whoever is responsible for the choices of players is very smart . I am not a jazz scholar so I cannot accurately use terms like "traditional", "post-bop" etc., but my music library includes 40 Blue Note CDs from the sixties and seventies including several Bobby Hutcherson albums. My ear recognizes the good stuff and Enjoy the View is good stuff !!
Bobby's vibes do not over dominate and are beautifully integrated into each track. My estimation of David Sanborn has gone up a notch as he plays with a combination of old school skill and sensitivity. And Joey DeFrancesco ! Wow! Instead of the piano as on the old Blue Note sessions we get a very cool organ sound. He is one of the best playing today. And despite owning a number of his albums I did not know he played trumpet . He plays the instrument very well. And Billy Hart holds down the drum seat with perfection.
Enjoy the View and the new Brian Blade Fellowship release are the best jazz albums so far in 2014.

I like this album a lot. It is not the "wild and crazy jazz music" with adventures improvisations. If I want that I go back to early records on Blue Note with Hutcherson. And why should it sounds like 50 years ago? This is a gentle side of Bobbie Hutcherson which is as demanding as it can sound uninspiring and unexciting. But it does not. It is a good and varying mix of tunes and the arrangements are beautiful and the musicians really put a joint effort to present it. Joey De Francesco is a master of colours and so is Billy Hart. In the seventies, David Sanborn was one my heroes on the fusion stage. I have had a little bit harder to go crazy with him on more acoustic jazz. But on this albu he shine a bit more, not for his improvisation - here he is more a painter that gives a special mode to the soundtage. And then of course Bobby himself with his unique tone and vibe. A true master. Not a masterwork but a very good and enjoyable album that gives a nice mood.

I came across this recent release by accident and what a pleasant surprise. I believe this is the first CD since "Skyline" where Bobby plays with a saxophonist and David Sanborn does an admirable job. Interestingly, on both Bobby's "Somewhere In the Night" and Joey's "Organic Vibe" I miss the tone of a string bass, despite Joey's amazing ability with the B-3 and his ambidextrous/ambipedal talents, but I am happy to say I don't feel that way with "Enjoy the View". Perhaps it is the quality of the production. It could also be the drumming of Billy Hart that makes the difference as I have seen Bobby and Joey live a couple of times before.

While the ensemble includes three distinguished soloists, there is lots of space in the recording. It is never cluttered or busy. The quartet lays down some awesome grooves whether it be newer material or revisiting the rich Hutcherson catalogue.

Sure I am biased, I am a big fan of Bobby's music. I have seen him live many times with some incredible musicians and I am happy to say "Enjoy the View" holds up. I have booked a trip to NYC to catch Bobby at the Lincoln Centre in November and while he will undoubtedly have moved on to something new and fresh by then, I will relish in the delight of this quartet's music.

This a surprise cd for me. Four of my absolute favorite players.
But cats that I did not necessarily picture playing together.
From the first minute of the first track I was loving it!
I love the sound of the B3 with the vibes . Each so distinct, but what a beautiful combination. Add Dave Sanborn's alto to the mix
and Billy Heart playing with and supporting everyone at once.
I'm going to listen to this CD many times and I'm sure discover
even more moments of joy each time.

Fully enjoyed the relaxed view of the jazz greats, which marks the return of Bobby Hutcherson to iconic Blue Note label. Three players equally share the composition, while drummer Billy Hart supplying versatile pulse and steady energy throughout the album. Leading characters here are David Sanborn and Joey DeFrancesco, Hutcherson embraces them warmly. “Montara” is only one replayed tune. Comparing with the original August ’75 version (BN 551G,) there’s no vibraphonist who leads the tune and hopping around the tropical hill scenery. Sanborn starts with characteristic phrase and bursts into his long solo, which is handed over to DeFrancesco. Generously followed Hutcherson succeeds their plays with his deliberate mallet works. DeFrancesco’s sprint makes our eyes widely open. He doesn’t only thump through massive bass tones while churning out seas of organ sounds, but also overdubs Miles Davis like muted trumpet solo on “Hey Harold.” Hutcherson is vividly performing here, while Sanborn spinning earthy phrases. They contrives song starters and solo orders of every tunes. DeFrancesco leads off pleasantly in soulful “Delia,” and conclude the song after several exchange between sobbing Sanborn and poised Hutcherson. “Don Is” produces comical atmosphere in someway. Lightly flying around Hutcherson, familiar phrase citing Sanborn, and joyfully skipping DeFrancesco, all play superb solo in this order. Hutcherson answers with lyrical sereneness to Sanborn’s emotional approach in “Little Flower.”
Sanborn is said to be his first time to play with Hutcherson or Hart. However, they seem to have established a bond of trust immediately. They are very conversational in “Teddy.” Billy Hart’s setts the pace and mood of “You,” where three melody players fluidly converse each others on their view again and again.
