Über Bobby Hutcherson
Bobby Hutcherson first got attention playing Avant Garde Jazz with such names as Charles Lloyd and Eric Dolphy (on 1964's landmark Out to Lunch). Talented in the extreme, he went on to perform with hard and post-bopsters like Herbie Hancock, Grant Green, and McCoy Tyner. His straight-ahead, crowd-pleasing work is just as tasty as his far-out jams. He has a new contract with Verve and enters the new century showing off his ballad mastery.
