I've always considered the bass as being a non verbal instrument. However,
James Leary I I I had it talking a hundred miles a minute! His own composition
"She So Sweet" was definately a standout selection for the evening It was a free
floating tune that took you up easy and brought you bark
mellow Right on time
Generally speaking. Bobby Hutcherson and his quintet were good. Hut the next
time Hobby and his quintet are in town, I'll probably want to know who his back up
men are.

What'» Happening In Entertainment
In the last year or so, The Jazz He Opui Tavern ha» come up with some heavy
weight musicians to entertain you. Hoy Ayer», Jack DeJeanettc, Dexter Gordan
and Hobby Hutcherson, who was there Sunday.
After waiting half an hour
outside, and one hour after getting in. Hobby Hutcherson and the Aggeration were
off to the sky. Along with Bobby on vibes there were: Ixiuie Bourd on saxaphone,
Henry llacord on drums and James Ix*ary III on base The set was a variety of up
tern,>o compositions, like: "Moments Notice," a Cole Porter selection; "Soft as
Peanuts," by Charlie Parker: "Bees Poem." a Bobby Hutcherson composition that
he composed for his son, an airy tune that showed the vibes enthusiast just how it's
As far as individual performances were concerned, the saxophonist Ixiuie Bourd
was in on most of the solos, but his cold, solemn expressions all evening were

the cast.
