Morning Song – Ummh

June 17, 2017

It’s worth the wait (4:35) for Bobby Hutcherson’s exquisite, funky, in-the-pocket vibes solo on “Ummh”—both because…well…it’s a terrific solo by one of the great vibraphonists ever*, and because the groove Hutcherson’s early jazz fusion quintet—Harold Land on tenor, Joe Sample on keys, bassist John Williams and drummer Mickey Roker—finds and digs into will keep you going all day.

Enjoy.

*Joey DeFrancesco once said, “Milt Jackson was the guy, but Bobby took it to the next level. It’s like Milt was Charlie Parker, and Bobby was John Coltrane“.
