5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy the sound June 26, 2014
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The good and gentle side of Hutcherson July 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy the Vibe! August 14, 2014
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hutcherson & friends still going strong September 17, 2014

Weirdly listed as a Dave Sanborn album in places but this collaboration is better viewed as a Hutcherson project - and he is in fine form. The album is flawless. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Don't Understand the Low Ratings July 15, 2014
By JLP
Format:Audio CD
This CD is great. It's a bit of a departure from the smooth jazz that David Sanborn usually plays. Put this CD on the next time you have a dinner party.

Give it a chance before you bash it.
