Meeting Vibraphone Jazz ‘Head On’ by Kevin Whitehead September 9, 2008 –

An acclaimed vibraphonist, Bobby Hutcherson has been leading recording sessions since 1965, and recently released his 2007 album, For Sentimental Reasons. Now his 1971 album Head On (Blue Note/EMI) is being re-issued, drawn from a unique jazz session — featuring reeds, flutes and multiple percussion — led by Hutcherson himself.

It’s a portrait of jazz in transition, masterminded by classical, R&B, pop and jazz composer Todd Cochran, who wrote most of it and put his stamp on all of it.


Bobby held the door open for me; he allowed me to see “the wonder” and the “what if”… _Todd Cochran
