Mitch Haupers is hardly a Young Lion on the scene. A longstanding faculty member at the Berklee College of Music, the seasoned guitarist-composer-educator is only now seeing the release of his recording debut as a leader at age 55. A showcase of his thoughtful, affecting compositions – which reveal themselves gradually and gracefully – Haupers’ Invisible Cities bears the stamp of a steady, veteran hand at the helm. It also boasts an all-star core group of pianist Alan Pasqua, bassist Darek “Oles” Oleszkiewicz, drummer Peter Erskine and saxophonist Bob Mintzer with a special guest appearance by Mintzer’s Yellowjackets bandmate, pianist Russell Ferrante. Produced by bassist and Yellowjackets co-founder, Jimmy Haslip, Invisible Cities stands as Haupers’ long-overdue triumph as a player-composer.
