Bobby Hutcherson epitomizes the modern jazz vibraphonist, and helped modernize his instrument by redefining what could be done with it-- sonically, technically, melodically, and emotionally and in the process, became one of the defining voices of Blue Note's glorious and classic 1960s roster.

During the 1960s, Bobby released two masterful recordings for Blue Note Records, Stick Up!, and Dialogue, that would define the vibraphone as a jazz instrument for decades to come. He also performed and recorded with some of the most important artists in jazz, including Grant Green, Charles Lloyd, Jackie McLean, Herbie Hancock, Harold Lland, and McCoy Tyner, whom Bobby continues to record and tour with.

In 1986, he appeared in the motion picture Round Midnight, alongside Dexter Gordon and Herbie Hancock.

Today, Bobby Hutcherson tours a quartet consisting of some of the top sidemen in jazz music, in addition to appearing as a special guest with renowned artists such as Herbie Hancock, Joey DeFrancesco, and McCoy Tyner. In January 2010, Bobby Hutcherson released Wise One on Kind of Blue Records to wide critical acclaim.
