Bobby Hutcherson - Enjoy the View

A stupendously fine post bop album, Hutcherson’s last, released in 2014 and Grammy Award winning for the best jazz instrumental album. A superb way to sign out. Recommended.

Vinyl reissue originally released 1964 - Coltrane’s second stint in Miles Davis’ group in 1958, he was sounding frustrated by the chord progressions and rules of the bebop and hard-bop schools. At this time he recorded many albums as a sideman and as a leader on the Prestige label. Coltrane recorded dozens of sides for the label and many of these sessions were shelved when he signed with Atlantic Records in 1959. The Believer was one of them. The music was recorded between 1957 and 1958 but wasn’t released until the height of Coltrane’s popularity in 1964.

On The Believer, you hear a man on a mission for new and unexplored musical directions but still confined to the hard-bop clichés of the day; the stuff that paid the bills at the time. Coltrane’s sense of seeking adds an intense ferocity to his playing and makes the music both wonderfully compelling and historically important. Fine album. 8)
