Big Band with Vibes

Hey Everyone,

I have a gig with a Big Band in May and I have a meeting next week to discuss the repertoire. I was wondering if some of you guys might have some ideas for existing arrangements for Big Band with vibes. Ofcourse I'm thinking of all the Terry Gibbs Dream Band stuff and also Lionel Hampton. I also have a great record of Milt Jackson with the Clayton-Hamilton orchestra(Explosive!)

I was just wondering if any of you would have some more ideas, so I can check some stuff.

Thanks a lot!

The Greatest recordings of vibes and big band are the two records of Milt Jackson and the Count Basie Big band. I can't express how amazing these records are.
