 Cruisin' The 'Bird: The Hard Bop Homepage
Bobby Hutcherson is such an artist: he plays much, much better today than when he first began getting notice some twenty-five years ago.
Hutcherson is now in such command of what he wishes to do that one of the greatest problems in art--sustaining a mood--is solved not only in his own playing but in the work of those with whom he has surrounded himself on this date.
That Bobby Hutcherson has evolved the ability to bring this off so effortlessly is proof of the work he has done on his own talent and his music (not only as a player but also as a composer).

 CD Review of Bobby Hutcherson - Un Poco Loco on Koch Jazz @ jazzreview.com
Bobby Hutcherson (vibes & marimba), John Abercrombie (acoustic & electric guitars), George Cables (electric & acoustic pianos), Chuck Domanico (electric & acoustic basses), Peter Erskine (drums & percussion).
Hutcherson’s instruments fare a little better, but there’s none of the richly detailed ring and hanging-in-air timbre so commonplace on the Blue Notes.
Luckily, Hutcherson didn’t fall headfirst into the commercial abyss like his friend and frequent collaborator Freddie Hubbard, whose career never fully recovered from the string of disco-jazz monstrosities he recorded during this same era for Columbia and Fantasy.

Bobby Hutcherson [+]'s second quartet session, Oblique [+], shares both pianist Herbie Hancock [+] and drummer Joe Chambers with his first, Happenings [+] (bassist Albert Stinson [+] is a newcomer).
For starters, there's less emphasis on Hutcherson originals; he contributes only three of the six pieces, with one from Hancock and two from the typically free-thinking Chambers.
The title cut is quick and driving, with lots of short, fleeting exchanges between Hutcherson and a surprisingly swinging Hancock; "Bi-Sectional" makes playful use of chromaticism in its first part, after which Hutcherson and Chambers switch between several different percussion instruments for what amounts to an artillery attack.

 Bobby Hutcherson : Dialogue - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Coming fresh on the heels of his groundbreaking work with Eric Dolphy, Bobby Hutcherson's debut album is a masterpiece of "new thing" avant-garde jazz, not really free but way beyond standard hard bop.
Hutcherson has so many fine players on hand that the focus is naturally on group interaction rather than any particular soloist(s), setting up nice contrasts like the fiery sax work of Rivers versus the cooler tones of Hutcherson and Hill.
Dialogue remains Hutcherson's most adventurous, "outside" album, and while there are more extensive showcases for his playing, this high-caliber session stands as arguably his greatest musical achievement.

Bobby Hutcherson is fantastic on vibes, starting out with Ornette Coleman's catchy Una Muy Bonita and moving through five more originals, which is different than the equally excellent (and different) Patterns where he contributes no songs.

Hutcherson 's originals (five out of six selections) show him at the top of his game as a composer, and the ensemble's playing is tight and focused throughout, but what really lifts Stick-Up!
Hutcherson 's originals are uniformly strong and memorable enough to sit very well next to it, and that -- coupled with the energetic performances -- ranks Stick-Up!

Thus, a year after it was made, the comparatively conventional album was deemed unrepresentative of Hutcherson's artistry--he had since become a member of the Archie Shepp quartet--and it remained in the can for 36 years, until this 1999 release.

But Bobby had (and still has) a work ethic, a brilliant mind, a profound, non-ritualistic spirituality, an innate wisdom and warmth that made for the ingredients of an outstanding jazz artist as well as a hell of a human being.
When it was issued, Bobby was member of Archie Shepp's quartet.

This swinging December 1963 session was actually Bobby Hutcherson's first as a leader for Blue Note, but the more adventurous Dialogue, from April 1965, was the first released under the visionary vibraphonist's name.
I'm rather surprised as Hutcherson did play on some avante garde sessions with Eric Dolphy, Andrew Hill, Jackie McLean, and Archie Shepp, but for every avante garde session, there was another like Grant Green's Idle Moments, or his Streets of Dreams (with Larry Young and Elvin Jones).

 BOBBY HUTCHERSON / SAN FRANCISCO
The fact is that Hutcherson was a jazz revolutionary who courageously pushed the vibraphone past convention and into uncharted territory.
In 1967, Hutcherson did what few jazz musicians ever have the guts to do…he left the paying-gig promised land of New York City and returned to the West Coast of his childhood.
When Hutcherson entered the studio on July 15, 1970 to record San Francisco, his writing and playing were already beginning to reflect his times, shifting away from the avant-garde towards a more accessible sound.

Today Bobby Hutcherson is one of the established giants of mainstream modern jazz.
Hutcherson himself credits the expansive mood prevalent in New York City at the time--a willingness to 'cross-pollinate' art forms typified by the outdoor 'happenings' that were part of the scene.
Hubbard is in very fine form here, proving he could be as avant-garde as anyone else (he often, unfairly, is considered solely to be a "groove" trumpeter.) Rivers only solos twice, but both solos (particularly his soprano) are two of the finest on record.

Review: Perhaps the single album that best sums up Bobby Hutcherson's early musical personality, Components is appropriately split into two very distinct halves.
Hutcherson allots himself more solo space than on Dialogue, but that's no knock on the excellent supporting cast, which includes Herbie Hancock on piano, James Spaulding on alto sax and flute, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Ron Carter on bass.
It's just more Hutcherson's date, and he helps unite the disparate halves with a cool-toned control that's apparent regardless of whether the material is way outside or more conventionally swinging.

For sure, this is the strangest Bobby Hutcherson disc in his fine catalog: Electric piano, Latin percussion, a definite psychedelic/Latin/jazz/fusion vibe.
Bobby probably wore some righteous bell bottoms and a tight-fitting polyester shirt to these sessions.lt;pgt;Called Hutchersons first all Latin session, it lives up to its billing, and actually contains some very fine playing, once you get over the seventies weirdness.
Since Bobby H is hands down my favorite vibes/marimba player (and he esp. shines on the latter instrument), Id probably pick up anything and everything by him.
