Marc:

As usual, you are right on the money with this post. This is an amazing record which I have loved for many years. It is also a fabulous showcase for Harold Land and Chick Corea. Hopefully, BN will let Van Gelder do a 24-bit remaster on this title.

And... the rhythm-section is ne plus ultra on Total Eclipse too. I would have to quote it as my favorite Joe Chambers: the bass/drums hook up is examplary stuff: hypnotic and powerful in its relentless forward surge. Certainly it's a classic and should be widely known. I think it's his best, and that's saying something (although "Oblique" is pretty close - and I do love the Landmark albums too).

Howard Mandel

Nice posting re Mr. Hutcherson, who performed in quartet at the Portland Jazz Festival last February, hitting hard but obviously short of breath (he was reportedly on oxygen, suffering, I believe, from emphysema). I'd like to promote another of his albums as unfortunately overlooked: The View from the Inside, cut in the mid-to-late '70s, and gorgeous.
