Captain Jarvis Jazz Fusion Single Release
Hugh Hitchcock: artist, composer and producer
Hugh Hitchcock, AKA Hugh Jarvis HItchcock, AKA Huey Hitchcock, AKA Captain Jarvis
Hugh has been involved with music since a very young age with a few milestones (and a few bumps!) along the way.
Hugh gigged in and around the Detroit area during the 1970s-1980s with such acts as Norma Jean Bell, Marcus Belgrave, Lamont Johnson, Belita Woods before moving to Miami where he has been a bandleader and show promoter 90s-present
Hugh played the Detroit area with his own band and was "discovered" by producers Duane Freeman and Paul Riser. The full story of Captain Jarvis can be found here
Hugh's song "Captain Jarvis" reached #7 on the Billboard Jazz charts on artist Noel Pointer on United Artists records and launched his career as a sought-after bass player
In that release, the song was produced by Motown great Paul Riser with a wonderful Motown arrangement during the time when Disco wanted to be Jazz.
Hugh's original vision of the song was a little less Motown Disco and a little more Herbie Hancock Electric Jazz Funk.
Now you can hear Hugh's original vision of his classic, "Captain Jarvis", an electric Jazz Funk Fusion favorite.
