Bobby Hutcherson was born to Eli, a master mason, and Esther, a hairdresser. Hutcherson was exposed to jazz by his brother Teddy, who listened to Art Blakey records in the family home with his friend Dexter Gordon. His older sister Peggy was a singer in Gerald Wilson's orchestra and personally introduced Hutcherson to Eric Dolphy (her boyfriend at the time) and Billy Mitchell.

I think one thing Matt Collar misses in his otherwise excellent review is how Head On is influenced by Bitches Brew. Recorded about a year after BB it includes both trumpet and sax and both piano and electric piano and the bass sounds electric throughout. The album is very groove-oriented and includes three sons over 10 minutes. Just listen closely to Hey Harold with it's repetitive bass line and you'll swear MIles was directing from the sidelines. However, unlike so many musicians who played with Davis on BB who went on to form their own fusion bands (Corea, Hancock, Zawinul, Shorter, McLaughlin, etc.) that's not a direction he really continued with in any major way (however his previous album, San Francisco, has fusion leanings, and listen to Zuri Dance on Cirrus from 1974). It's definitely a departure for Hutcherson and I think a great success for one of our greatest jazz musicians.
