Wikipedia : This day (August 15, 2016), in Montara, California, died Bobby Hutcherson, a jazz vibraphone and marimba player
A Bobby Hutcherson Web Site : His music is pulsing with life. It’s wide-eyed and open. It’s fearless. It’s healing. It’s full of joy. But these words really aren’t adequate. If you listen, you’ll hear it.
@allmusic : Easily one of jazz’s greatest vibraphonists, he epitomized his instrument in relation to the era in which he came of age the way Lionel Hampton did with swing or Milt Jackson with bop.
@last.fm : The 1966 Blue Note session, Stick-Up!, featuring saxophonist Joe Henderson is notable, being the first recorded session Hutcherson made with McCoy Tyner on piano, a lasting association that continues today.
