Hi Everyone,
Does anyone know anything about the vibes player AJ Mantas who played with percussionist Norman Hedman, and the Joe Cuba Sextet for more than 30 years? He was killed near his home (I think NYC) by a hit-and-run driver in, I believe, 2012. He also played with Joe Bataan, Jose Mangual Jr.'s Son Boricua. If anyone can tell me the year of his birth I'll announce you on Good Vibes as a specialist in vibraphone history.

I actually got a funny message on fb from someone wanting to talk to me about him. I'll keep you posted!
