Vibraphonist Steve Hobbs pays to tribute the legendary master of the vibes Bobby Hutcherson, who passed away in 2016. His quintet plays masterfully, and the compositions cover a multitude of Jazz styles from Latin to Modal to the New Jazz of the sixties. The swinging Post-Bop of ‘The Craving Phenomenon’ kicks the CD off in fine style, whilst ‘Into The Storm’ is a complex rhythmic piece over which Hutcherson would have revelled. The modal ‘New Creation’ simmers in a Coltrane style, whilst ‘El Sueno De Horace Silver’ has a Latin Bop vibe. The standard ‘Where Or When’ is taken at double time, and ‘Let’s Go To Abaco’ is another fine driving 60’s style Jazz piece. All thirteen tracks are very strong. Hobbs plays Marimba on many tunes, an instrument that Hutcherson also favoured. Brilliant.
