On an album that exhibits both vibraphonist Bobby Hutchersonís avant-garde leanings and his hard-bop grounding, Hutchersonís "Little Bís Poem" exemplifies the latter. A lilting waltz whose fragility is emphasized by its exposition on flute, its performance contains highly melodic solos by Hutcherson, one of the eraís leading vibraphonists, by Spaulding, and by a young Herbie Hancock, who, along with bassist Ron Carter, was at the time a member of the Miles Davis Quintet.
