Product Notes

Vinyl LP repressing of this jazz classic. Components was an album by jazz vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, released on the Blue Note label in 1965. The first side of the LP features compositions by Hutcherson, in a hard bop style, whilst the second side features Joe Chambers' compositions, more in the avant-garde style. Hutcherson describes "Tranquillity" as "so tranquil as to almost suggest no time at all." "Little B's Poem" was written for Bobby's son, Barry, three years old at the time. "West 22nd Street Theme", which closes side one, is a reference to a Manhattan section near the 10th Ave, Chelsea, where Hutcherson lived for a while. Side two features Chambers originals. "Movement" is "like a six-part theme constantly in motion, held together by a pulse." About "Air", Chambers says: "Once that's set, they all jump into free counterpoint. As in all the pieces, each voice has to remain independent but in relationship to what's going on around him." "Pastoral" signifies a comeback to a kind of primitive setting, "as if to say to the listener 'This is what we come back to - the familiar, the beginning'."
