British vibes player Orphy Robinson is to play the songbook of the late Bobby Hutcherson with an all-star band in East London on Thursday September 29th.
Vibes player Orphy Robinson, one of the major figures of the British jazz scene, is to pay tribute to legendary vibes man Bobby Hutcherson with an all-star band at The Church Of Sound in Clapton, East London on Thursday September 29th.

His legacy is a vast repertoire with many cherished classic recordings, particularly for Blue Note Records which will make up the majority of Robinson’s production. The band will play music from albums like ‘Components’, ‘Stick up!’, ‘San Francisco’, ’Montara’ and ‘Knucklebean' as well as reflecting Hutcherson's work with Eric Dolphy and more.
