Natural Illusions is an album by American jazz vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson recorded in 1972 and released on the Blue Note label.[1]


The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 1½ stars and stated "Natural Illusions is one of the rare Bobby Hutcherson dates that finds the vibraphonist flirting with the mainstream and fusion... There's little of the unpredictable phrasing and modal harmonies that distinguished Hutcherson's albums, and the music often sounds conventional, making it one of the lesser efforts in his catalog".[2] Template:Album ratings
