Bobby Hutcherson’s virtuosity, flexibility, and range of musical thinking are dramatically presented in this remarkable recording. In addition to his customary vibraphone and marimba, Hutcherson uses modern studio techniques to simultaneously play a variety of percussion instruments. The resulting textures and rhythms comprise three of Hutch’s most fascinating creations, with elements of minimalist music but none of its boredom. On four other tracks, he is accompanied by an all-star rhythm of McCoy Tyner (in a rare sideman appearance), Herbie Lewis, and Billy Higgins in two standards and two Hutcherson originals. Among the highlights is a mysterious, suspenseful “Old Devil Moon.”

with McCoy Tyner, Herbie Lewis, Billy Higgins
