I've been playing about with my PS Audio P15 and its settings and power deliver TO it and have been using disc 2 of this lately oft-played set as the sound is so clear and dynamic and immediately familiar.

Groovin' Blue was the first full-length album that Bobby Hutcherson appeared on. :) 

 

I'm now listening to more early (1962-63) Hutcherson sideman work:

Bobby Hutcherson - The Al Grey & Dave Burns Sessions (Lonehill)
Originally released as three Al Grey albums on Argo: Night Song, Snap Your Fingers, and Having a Ball

My Dad’s favourite jazz record. The only album that he ever recommended to me.

It's a rock-solid recommendation. You could do a lot worse!  ;)

Sometimes late 50s jazz really hits the spot and these two albums are doing just that.

Bobby Hutcherson - Farewell Keystone (Theresa/Evidence)
with Harold Land (ts); Oscar Brashear (flgn, tr); Cedar Walton (p); Buster Williams (b); Billy Higgins (d)

Hard to imagine a more sympathetic ensemble.

Wish I could have been at the Keystone Korner to hear this one being made!  ;)

I'll conclude the Blue Note trilogy today.  It's interesting that Sonny acquired the rights to reissue the three albums on his own.  It's pretty uncommon.  I already owned the three albums as a download and this album as a physical release.  However, a few months ago, I found a signed copy of the reissue box on eBay for a silly price (about 9 bucks).

I bought the box from Sonny at one of his last shows in Boston. He signed most of them that were bought that night.

Per Discogs credits he splits alto duties with Bill Graham on this album, with Graham getting most of the time.

After the late 50s sessions moved on to some 60s Blue Note jazz with this well known warhorse. Less than 10 years had passed since those Land & Dameron albums had been recorded but the music here is so different.

Looking at the age of the players involved across these albums tells a piece of that story. Almost everyone on Fontainebleu was over 30, and some near 40 at the time of recording while on Land's album most are in their 30s or on the cusp of them. Meanwhile for the Hancock record Tony Williams was 19 and the youngest at the session, but no one was over 30 y/o.
