Creative Arts: Hutcherson Quintet)

By JOHN MILLER
Yes, Bobby Hutcherson, it was
a mind-release for us and you
and it was more. For us and you.
"Oblique," by Joe Chambers, was
a very personal and private ex-
perience for everyone at True-
blood last night. But it was the
last tune. And why was it a re-
lease? Why'd we need a release,
and we did.
Something real strange hap-
pened the first half. The weird
thing is that it happened to us

and not the Quintet. Had this
concert been two years ago it
wouldn't have happened. What
happened? We felt more distant
to jazz than we ever did before.
Maybe all the talk about the
death of jazz got inside us some-
where as we waited half an hour
for the concert to start. Sure the
Quintet played beautifully with
musical integrity and 'happening
things, but we really weren't with
oit.
Two years ago we were. Archie

Shepp played that same ridicu-
lous stage and we were gassed.
Nobody's saying that it's the same
music, but I don't think that the
difference in style is the point.
What is, is us. The whole "Brasil
'66-Mamas and Papas-turn the
amps up to 10-sockittome-veri-
tone sax-veritone trumpet-veri-.
tone tone-Dizzy's Fender bass-
CKLW music," has dulled us.
Even if you don't listen to it
dullness happens. It's not that
people need to tap their feet and
get on their high-heel sneakers,
but there isn't any jazz club in
this town anymore.
"Tranquility" was a very mov-
ing tune but there was something
else. There was sadness that we
haven't heard music like this in
a long time and perhaps now it's
just a little bit harder to get in it.
There was nothing trite about
"Blues, Mind, Matter" or Herbie
Hancock's "Theme from Blow
Up" but we really weren't knock-
ed out. Of course, these tunes
were meaningful experiences for
us but their importance lay in
the fact that they were once much3
more meaningful.
"Nocturnal," a n o t h e r Joe
Chambers composition, DID knock
us out. We loved every moment of
it and got really excited that no
matter how much Gladys Knight
you hear, there still is nothing
that's as refreshing as refreshing
jazz. There was honest commit-
ment floating all around that,
place. There were private exper-
iences happening all over and
two years ago we would have
been kinda embarrassed. Now we
thrived on it.
James Sapulding is a brilliant
musician. His flute playing was
one of the ' reasons why "Noc-
turnal" was what it was. But his
alto playing on the free "Oblique"
was astonishing. I can't write
about it. You shoulda gone. Stan
Cowell gets better every time we
see him. His solo on this last tune

was a classic of piano free music.
The mere fact that Reggie
Workman came to Ann Arbor is
great in itself. He's a beautiful
bass player and always was, prob-
ably before he even played.
"Oblique" was his only unaccom-
panied solo. Why? Drummer Joe

Bobby Hutcherson-Thank you

own playing 'cause we can buy

Arbor, but you let us know what
a shame it is.

torical evolution" as the basis for
his beliefs.
"The world is coming to a
choice," King says. "A choice be-
tween total destruction and paci-
fism." That the world might
choose its destruction "is my
greatest fear," he admits.
Marc Crandall, '70, does not:
worry about other wars than Viet-
nam. He sees the peace movement
as something soon to develop, and
something which will exclude the
possibilities of war occurring.
Crandall feels, "nothing can bej
worth violence. Nothing is worth
the destruction of a war, to cul-
ture, to the soul and human life.,
Nothing can be worth this."
Crandall thinks he may apply'
for CO status and then go to work
in some foreign country on a,
friend-of-the-service project. If he
doesn't get CO status, "I'll go to
jail."

But jail is an abhorent prospect
to most, indicating a way of life
that chokes creativity and curdles
each dull day into a stagnant exist-
ence. Jail seems as much a denial
of freedom to them as conscrip-
tion.
It is in this perplexing milieu
jthat most students eventually find
themselves, some sooner than oth-
ers. Few detest America or are
unpatriotic. The vast majority feel
they have an obligation to their
country, but as freshman Eric
Jackson asks, "Can't it be some-
thing else?"
But it can't. As long as the laws
remain as they are today, and as
long as the war continues, there
will be a draft. And when studentI
realize this, it is then that they
go to' the dark corners of thei
bedrooms to sit and to think. And
as one student says, "sometimes
to cry."
