Bobby Hutcherson (1941-2016) is one of the quartet of vibists most responsible for shaping the sound of the vibraphone in the 1960s and whose legacy continued in the decades after. Perhaps not as well known as Milt Jackson, Lionel Hampton, or Gary Burton, Hutcherson’s influence, particularly in the post-bop, fusion, and avant-garde styles of jazz, is strongly felt and there is a solid body of recordings from Eric Dolphy’s Out to Lunch (1964), the Hutcherson led effort Stick-Up! (1966), and the quintet founded with Harold Land on Total Eclipse (1967) that solidified his place in jazz history. In addition to his playing style, which he also expanded to include extensive use of the marimba, he separated himself from his peers by also being a talented composer; much of his most prominent work is of his own compositions. Tonight we will pay tribute to Hutcherson the player and composer while taking this opportunity to explore the range of great tunes that he has left behind.
