Searching around YouTube yesterday, I found a gorgeous clip. The following video features vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson
with tenor saxophonist Harold Land on July 25, 1969 at the Juan Les Pins Jazz Festival in Antibes, France. They were backed by Stanley Cowell (p), Reggie Johnson (b) and Joe Chambers (d). This clip
features the quintet on Herzog
, which Hutcherson and Land recorded a year earlier on Hutcherson's album Total Eclipse
(Blue Note). Dig the heat of Land against the coolness of Hutcherson, not to mention the virtuosity of the rhythm section (only drag is the final seconds of the song are nipped off)...
