15-16 Apr 1988, Berkeley, CA

Notes
"Sierra" is the same tune as "Montara," which originally appeared on the album Montara.

Commentary
Cruisin' the Bird is a strong effort, one of Hutcherson's finest Landmark recordings. Most of Hutcherson's recordings originally issued on the Landmark label were subsequently reissued by the 32 Jazz label (before it also went out of business). But Cruisin' the Bird was not. It may not be readily available, but it's well worth tracking down.
