SFgate.com has an interesting article on jazz vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson:
Hutcherson speaks of the feelings and experiences the music evokes, often
displaying a poet's touch with detail. With such a high-powered group, he
can take technical mastery for granted, so he says the group's single
rehearsal will be more about each musician finding his emotional
attachment to each song.
Also, if you have some (actually quite a bit) of disposable income you'd like to get rid of there will be an auction of rare jazz memorabilia:
Other items at the Feb. 20 sale will include unreleased tape recordings of music by Parker and handwritten compositions and arrangements by composers John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk, representatives for Guernsey's Auction House said.
