Thursday, June 8th at 9pm
The Micah Rutschman Quintet will be performing a tribute to Jazz Vibraphone and Marimba player Bobby Hutcherson. The night will also feature an installation and live painting from visual artist Lisha Misha.
“Easily one of jazz's greatest vibraphonists, Bobby Hutcherson 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… Hutcherson helped modernize his instrument by redefining what could be done with it -- sonically, technically, melodically, and emotionally. In the process, he became one of the defining (if underappreciated) voices in the so-called "new thing" portion of Blue Note's glorious '60s roster..”
