Vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson was among the most successful and appealing of the 1960s musicians who merged post-bop aesthetics with the experiments of free jazz.
His 1965 album DIALOGUE is one of his best--melodic, adventurous, rigorously musical, and ever-searching. Hutcherson pushes the jazz envelope here while maintaining allegiance to structure and form. The insistent, Latin-tinged opener, "Catta," is a case in point, a bold exploration set to percolating rhythms and a memorable theme.
Some of the best players of the era--including trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, saxophonist Sam Rivers, and pianist Andrew Hill--help make this classic even classier.
Personnel includes: Bobby Hutcherson (vibraphone, marimba); Sam Rivers (soprano saxophone, tenor saxophone, flute, bass clarinet); Freddie Hubbard (trumpet); Andrew Hill (piano); Richard Davis (bass); Joe Chambers (drums).
