Components is an album by jazz vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, released on the Blue Note label in 1965. The first side of the LP features compositions by Hutcherson, in a hard bop style, while the second side features Joe Chambers' compositions, more in the avant-garde style. Hutcherson leads a crew of James Spaulding, Freddie Hubbard, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Joe Chambers.
Newly remastered for vinyl as part of an overall Blue Note 75th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign spearheaded by current Blue Note Records President, Don Was.
"Components illustrated that Hutcherson was not only the most adventurous vibes player on the scene, but that he was also capable of playing more straightforward music with intelligence and feeling." -Steve Huey, allmusic.com
