Two jazz legends on the same stage. Vibraphone player Bobby Hutcherson (1941) loved music from an early age but as soon as he heard an album of Milt Jackson, he knew which instrument was meant for him. Hutcherson worked with Charles Lloyd, Billy Mitchell and Harold Land; he stood out with his contribution to the impressive Eric Dolphy album Out to Lunch. The vibraphonist also recorded several important albums on Blue Note, including Dialogue. In the 1980s, record producer Wim Wigt brought pianist Cedar Walton and Hutcherson together in the Timeless All Stars. Walton (1934) had worked with J.J. Johnson, Art Farmer and Art Blakey, among others. He was also a much-in-demand session musician on countless recordings (for Blue Note and Prestige). He formed a partnership with drummer Billy Higgins and the two became known as one of the best rhythm sections ever. Cedar Walton has also written several evergreen jazz standards, including Ugetsu, Bolivia and Mosaic.
