Recorded in 1963, "The Kicker" was actually vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson's first session as a leader for Blue Note. However, for reasons lost to time, it was shelved. Instead, Hutcherson's album "Dialogue" was released as his debut two years later.

First released in 1999 and now receiving its first-ever vinyl release, "The Kicker" serves as a sequel to guitarist Grant Green's masterpiece "Idle Moments." The album was recorded one month earlier with the exact same personnel, featuring Green, tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson, pianist Duke Pearson, bassist Bob Cranshaw, and drummer Al Harewood.
