In the 1960s, Bobby Hutcherson was the in-house vibraphone player for Blue Note Records. Hutcherson performed on many of that label's groundbreaking albums including Eric Dolphy's OUT TO LUNCH, as well as leading several fine sessions himself. FOR SENTIMENTAL REASONS (2007) finds him in a mellower frame of mind but no less the fine vibist. REASONS is a ballad album in which Hutcherson's quartet (featuring the superb Rene Rosnes on piano) re-visits classic jazz and Great American Songbook standards. The mood is delicate and subdued, and the sounds exquisite, with Hutcherson utilizing an unusual sense of space between the notes, virtually suspending the melodies in air like raindrops. Things get a little more up-tempo on "Don't Blame Me" and the Latin-tinged "I Wish I Knew," but this doesn't upset the relaxed, late-night ambience of this wonderful set.
