West Coast vibraphone and marimba player Bobby Hutcherson was first inspired to play by the "Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Giants" rendition of "Bemsha Swing" as a twelve year boy.

He developed a free melodic style similar to that of Milt Jackson with a modern sense of harmony.

Hutcherson served as an influence on younger vibraphonists, Steve Nelson and Stefon Harris.

His interests have included experimental free jazz and post-bop modern.

One of Bobby's most famous compositions is "Little B's Poem", from his 1965 album "Components."
