Biography

Bobby Hutcherson (born January 27, 1941, in Los Angeles, California) is a jazz vibraphone and marimba player. His vibraphone playing is suggestive of the style of Milt Jackson in its free-flowing melodicism, but his sense of harmony and group interaction is thoroughly modern. Hutcherson has influenced younger vibraphonists including Steve Nelson, Joe Locke and Stefon Harris.

"Little B's Poem" (from the album Components) is one of his best-known compositions.
