The Blue Note Tone Poet Series was born out of Blue Note President Don Was' admiration for the exceptional audiophile Blue Note LP reissues presented by Music Matters. Was brought Joe Harley (from Music Matters), a.k.a. the "Tone Poet," on board to curate and supervise a series of reissues from the Blue Note family of labels.

Recorded in 1967, Oblique is one of two quartet sessions the great vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson recorded for Blue Note. Released in 1979, features Herbie Hancock (piano), Joe Chambers (drums) & Albert Stinson (bass). An incredible journey from bops to exploratory sonic poems, with standouts like breezy opener "`Til Then," Hancock's tremendous "Theme From Blow Up" and Chambers' adventurous "Oblique." Blue Note Tone Poet Series features all-analog, remastered 180-gram vinyl in gatefold packaging.
