Editorial Reviews

Vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, who successfully translated John Coltrane’s "sheets of sound" approach to the vibes, became the acknowledged master of that instrument when Milt Jackson died in 1999. A veteran of many historic Blue Note dates, a bit player in the movie Round Midnight, and founding member of the SF Jazz Collective, Hutcherson calls this mostly ballads CD, with pianist Renee Rosnes, bassist Dwayne Burno, and drummer Al Foster, his "love record." All of his powers are evident here: his melodic fluency, vast harmonic imagination, and his incredible ability to make the vibes sing. Like Lester Young, Hutcherson knows how to melodically tell a story, as evidenced by his shimmering takes on the Latin-tinged "Ode to Angela," and "I Wish I Knew," his sumptuous piano duet on the Bernstein/Sondheim classic "Somewhere," and his heartbreaking, solo number "I’ll Be Seeing You," Hopefully we’ll be seeing and hearing from this genius more often. --Eugene Holley, Jr.

Product Description

As the Penguin Guide to Jazz notes, vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson is ''an undervalued genius'' where ''few have developed such a consistently challenging language for the instrument''. This is his first album for 8 years and is made up completely of standards. Produced by the legendary Richard Seidel, it features his working quartet which includes Renee Rosnes on piano, Dwayne Burno on bass and Al Foster on drums. Tracks include George and Ira Gershwin's Embraceable You, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim's Somewhere and Rodgers and Hart's Spring Is Here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Fine Wine...... July 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bobby Hutcherson really doesn't say much between songs when playing live. His focus is on the mood and the music and he speaks through his vibraphone. Breathing through pursed lips as the tones from his instrument resonate throughout the room, he will occasionally smile as Renee Rosnes impresses him with the textures she overlays. There is always that undertone of sophistication and subtle humour. I especially like when he ends a song emphatically by striking a low single note at the bottom of the register on his vibes. Take that!

Having caught five sets of Bobby's band over the last year from locales as distant as Vancouver to New York I was fortunate to have gained an appreciation for what was to become the CD, For Sentimental Reasons. Little did I know when I caught Bobby at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola last November that he and the band were recording the new CD. I think one of the sets that stands out the most for me was a Saturday night at the Blue Note during his CD release party this past June. What a treat.

The song, For Sentimental Reasons, is just that....sentimental. Ode to Angela is a breezy workout by the band, a great driving song. Listen to how Renee fills in the spaces around Bobby's playing on Embraceable You, Dwayne and Al provide a tasty backdrop. Along Came Betty steps out from the ballads, it is a pleasant groove that builds on the solos of Bobby and Renee. Somewhere is reminiscent of Manhattan Moods, that great duo record with McCoy Tyner. Who can help but hum the tune to Jitter Bug Waltz, it is contageous. Renee's solo builds and builds until she becomes the perfect foil for Bobby's solo and the two climb to soaring heights together, ultimately to leave us with that melody.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silky September 7, 2007
By G. Lee
Format:Audio CD
Everyone knows that Bobby Hutcherson is a Hall of Famer. He's played with all the greats, in all the jazz styles, and penned classics of his own. Here he is digging into some classic Great American Songbook stuff, and the entire CD is a very warm, mellow affair. One of his partners from the SF Jazz Collective, Renee Rosnes, is on piano throughout, and she is a fantastic complementary player to Bobby. A great late night listen. I heard this band live in New York City at the Blue Note and this is just like being there. Slip into something comfortable when you put this on and enjoy this master craftsman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simplicity Is Beauty June 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD
"One of the hardest things in the world to do is to play simple, to give the listener room to become part of the creative possibilities of the experience." ~ Bobby Hutcherson ~

I have always loved the soothing and gentle sound of a vibraphone, so this recording has impressed me greatly particularly the repertoire of ageless standards and the way they have been rendered. My favorite vibraphonists whom I have listed in my book of jazz include Lionel Hampton, Cal Tjader and Dave Samuels, who used to be a guest performer on many of the best recordings of Spyro Gyra, one of my favorite groups in the Seventies. Now I have added a vibes virtuoso that is Bobby Hutcherson to my list after listening to this simple yet very beautiful recording, "For Sentimental Reasons." Released almost a year ago, I consider this one of the greatest jazz recordings of all-time and I will definitely recommend it to any jazz aficionado who appreciates the unique sound of a vibraphone.

Together with pianist Renee Rosnes, bassist Dwayne Burno and drummer Al Foster, Mr. Hutcherson present a set of lovely tunes that are all pleasing to the ears starting off with a dreamy opener and the title track, "(I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons" down to a fitting closer, "I'll Be Seeing You." He plays his instrument so adeptly and the interplay among his fellow musicians is absolutely outstanding making all the tunes very enjoyable. They perfectly complement each other's superb and engaging style of playing.

Out of the eleven tracks, there isn't any trite tune. Everything about this recording is so beautiful. Each tune is a reminder of a heartfelt and tender emotion.
