Vibes player Bobby Hutcherson pops out of the time machine with a track from 1965’s Components for Deep Threes Radio #4. We’ll hear one of drummer Joe Chamber’s avant-garde compositions that still has a lot of bite. Hutcherson’s contributions stood in stark contrast, with a more identifiable hard-bop feel. Here’s a 1989 performance of one of those tracks, “Little B’s Poem”.
We’ll also hear from Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers from “Three Blind Mice, Vol. 1”. Art and his revolving lineup of Messengers could be smooth before it became a buzzword. From 1958, this is a long version of “Whisper Not”.
Danish vlogger “DanishVlog” (how do you think I figured it out?) has earned herself a small but steady following by whispering her way through 170 videos. The writers of the Shakespeare in Love screenplay observed that a bit with a dog is the key to commercial success. So this video got the nod over a hushed reading of “The Wind In The Willows” – but not by much.
