Bobby Hutcherson: Happenings
Picked up Bobby Hutcherson’s first quartet record on Blue Note. Happenings was recorded in 1966.
I’m really into his playing, and here – aside from Hancock’s Maiden Voyage – all tunes were written by Hutcherson. The Omen, in particular differs from the majority of tunes here which are fairly straightforward modal hard bop. This dark piece is more free and dynamic – definitely my favorite track.
