Bobby Hutcherson's 2014 album, Enjoy the View, finds the vibraphonist joining forces with saxophonist David Sanborn, organist Joey DeFrancesco, and drummer Billy Hart on a set of swinging, funky, and adventurous songs. In a similar vein to Sanborn's more straight-ahead acoustic collaboration with keyboardist Bob James, 2013's Quartette Humaine, Enjoy the View eschews Hutcherson and Sanborn's more contemporary leanings for a visceral hard bop and soul-jazz-influenced sound. This is expansive, highly engaging music that harks back to the best of Hutcherson's '60s and '70s work. ~ Matt Collar
