McCoy Tyner, Bobby Hutcherson - Manhattan Moods (APE+CUE)
Please keep seeding as long as you can.
Pianist McCoy Tyner and vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson (who doubles on marimba during this set) had recorded together previously on several occasions but never for a full set as a duet. It is not too surprising that they blend together quite well for both remain advanced improvisers who are tied to the hard bop/modal tradition. They perform two originals apiece plus five standards including "Blue Monk," "I Loves You Porgy" and Mal Waldron's "Soul Eyes." A pleasing effort full of subtle creativity.
