With upwards of 25 solo records as well as spots with the likes of Donald Byrd, Herbie Hancock, Chico Freeman, Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan and so many more under his belt, it is safe to say vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson has made his mark on both his instrument and the jazz music scene. You might be saying, “Well that’s nice that he made a mark in jazz, but what else?” Look no further than The Jazz Jousters Mirrors which features remixed versions of solely Bobby Hutcherson vibes samples. The project features a great integration of Hutcherson samples with more of a trip-hop or hip-hop-jazz feel.

“Mirrors is another installment to come from Millennium Jazz’s Lab Off sessions within their international Jazz Jousters community as they return yet again with a third helping of quality Trip Hop and Hip Hop Jazz. In this session the Jousters came together to sample the 1963, ‘Mirrors’ by the Vibraphone and Marimba veteran Bobby Hutcherson.” Look out for their remixed Bill Evans project out July 15, 2012.

FYI – just want to give props where they’re due: drummer-composer joe chambers is the composer of “mirrors.” easy mistake, since he’s not on bobby hutcherson’s recording of the tune; but the two of them made tons of amazing records together.

Respect to Joe Chambers on behalf of the Jousters. It’s pretty sad when people are not credited for their efforts in creating such great material.

Thanks for the support. Just a few more days to go for ‘The Jazz Jousters Dig Bill Evans’
