Sunday, August 21 at 3:00 p.m. on Jazz Tones on Jazz 91.9 WCLK I will pay a special tribute to Bobby Hutcherson and his career. Hutcherson, a Los Angeles native and accomplished vibraphonist, made his transition on August 15. His career spanned over 50 years and 40 recordings. Slipping free of the constraints of the designs of Bebop, Hutcherson adapted his instrument to a freer post-bop language. Bobby played chords with a pair of mallets in each hand.
