By 1980, vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson
had evolved from a member of the avant-garde into a top exponent of the modern mainstream. This excellent album (mostly originals and obscurities but highlighted by an inventive version of Bud Powell's
classic title cut) features Hutcherson
with a top notch all-star group also including guitarist John Abercrombie
, keyboardist George Cables
, electric bassist Chuck Domanico
and drummer Peter Erskine
. Pity that this fine set has been long out-of-print.
