Damn, I love this

music! Jazz music is the best in the world! It is full of wonderful

sounds and people who are dedicated to preserving the art. I had the

best time hanging with Bobby Hutcherson, Rosemary, Chet Hanley and John

Heard at Vibrato, an absolutely wonderful place designed and featured

as one on LA’s elite jazz clubs

for the best in jazz entertainment.



Tonight, Bobby

Hutcherson, certainly the world’s greatest vibe player, played to a

dinner crowd that stopped, listened and enjoyed the music. From the

fire to the sweet sounds of the ballads, Bobby lulled the audience to a

silent whisper with tunes like “Delilah” ,”Who’s got you”, “Embrace Me”

and many of his other wonderful pieces.



Vibrato, high on the

hill in Bel Air, is not just a great place, it is an experience. Pat

Senetor runs a wonderful jazz club and has some outstanding talent that

comes through the place. Kenny Werner was there with Toots, Billy

Childs, tonight’s show with the great Bobby Hutcherson and, in a few

weeks, Kenny Barron.



You can tell Bobby

really enjoyed playing with these cats. He said that “ these guys get

excited about every note” and that was apparently true! Geoff Keezer on

piano, Jeff Chambers on Bass and Eddie Marshall on drums provide the

perfect bed of magic to plant the “Vibes of Joy” in. Eddie said that he

and Bobby have been playing ever since they were 14 years old. The

comradely is as strong as the sound!

It is so wonderful to see such talented musicians dig deep inside the music! The love for jazz and all it’s wonders never ends.
