History of the Vibraphone (NPR)

i think we should all hit this link and comment on how great it is. It's a little talk about the vibes from NPR. If we all commented it might coerce them into to doing more stuff on the vibraphone!!

At least one more... :o)

I have this CD and it's great. Scofield, Marc Johnson on bass, Peter Erskine on drums and Michael Brecker, God rest his soul, he was a hell of a player. It's the kind of CD you can really mellow out to.

I thought it was odd that Stefon's track was marimba instead of vibes, considering that the article was about vibes. Excellent playing nonetheless.

Stefon's solo on the Bach piece is stellar ... really swingin' !

.... and oh yeah, 'Times Like These"! Lovely song, Gary and Michael together (you hear the first note and start missing him all over again).

This is quite a nice collection of vibe recordings. Wonderful Hamp on Flyin' Home. And Bobby's "Skyline " album ! Have you checked out the ballad,"Can You Read My Mind?" from this one? So beautiful .... And the infamous Miles date, where Monk walked out in the middle of the session - a classic.

I went to this site where you can find samples from Bobby Hutcherson's "Skyline" which are not "too small"...

Wow! This is something!

And yes, "Read my mind" is truly beautiful! I remember exactly the moment of the Superman movie it's from. He has completely transformed it into a great, thoughtful musical moment!

Much respect Monsieur Hutcherson!...

don't forget to post over at the link if you have time! It's right next to 'Add new comment'. that's if you have the time!

Oh... poor Tony! You keep on shouting!!! :o(

At least Tjaco heard you this time! :o)

Well, could it be because of the registration you have to do on NPR to leave a comment?

Comm'on guys! A few more clicks/keys! Let them know you exist! Let them know they are right to talk about the vibraphone, and that "some" people care about it! :o)

so maybe it's a drag for people to sign up. they don't want to. i get it.
