Product Notes

Bobby Naughton, vibraphone Joe Fonda, bass Randy Kaye, percussion Recorded November 15, 1983 at Dwight Chapel, Yale University. Engineer: Dean Roumanis Concert produced by Creative Musicians Improvisors Forum, Inc. Compositions by Bobby Naughton made possible by a grant from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts NOTES: He (Naughton) is self-taught as a performer and composer. After playing piano in rock-and-roll groups he took up vibraphone in 1966, and in the late 1960s played with Perry Robinson, Sheila Jordan, and others. He continued to work intermittently with Robinson while recording as a leader from 1969 on his own label, Otic; In 1971 he wrote a score for Hans Richter's silent film Everyday (1929). He played with the Jazz Composer's Orchestra in 1972 and Leo Smith (from the mid-1970s), and joined the Creative Music Improvisors Forum in New Haven, Connecticut. Naughton's vibraphone playing, like that of Gunter Hampel, emphasizes the instrument's role in group improvisation rather than it's possibilities as a solo vehicle. He plays fluently with four sticks, exploits the vibraphone's overtones, and sometimes controls manually the instrument's vanes (which vary it's sound intensity). His piano playing (which may be heard on the first of his albums) has a melodic strength and terseness remniscent of Paul Bley.-Roger Dean, The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz, copyright Macmillan Reference Ltd 1988 'Naughton has an uncanny ability to listen to and play off and with his sidemen.' Fernando Gonzalez, The Boston Globe '....a consummate group player.' Coda Magazine 'Naughton's something else.' Nat Hentoff, The New York Times.
