Bobby Hutcherson (1941-2016)

Jazz vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson left the planet yesterday at the age of 75.  The vibraphone is one of my favorite instruments and this dude was the biggest reason.  Of all the names in jazz that I come back to again and again (Miles, Herbie, Bird, Jackie McLean, Art Blakey, Joe Henderson, Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, etc, etc), Hutcherson is WAY up there near the top of the list.  RIP.
