Gifted vibraphonist/composer and NEA Jazz Master Bobby Hutcherson was among the elite cadre of musicians that defined the now classic Blue Note Records sound, setting the gold standard for an entire era of jazz in the ’60s and ’70s. Traversing a range of moods and styles through post-bop explorations, jazz funk grooves, and ethereal ballads, Hutcherson’s style always pushes further explorations. From collaborations with artists as diverse as Eric Dolphy and Joey DeFrancesco, to McCoy Tyner and the SFJAZZ Collective, time and again Hutcherson exhibits a musical mastery that is nothing short of phenomenal.
