i think being out of place and having a different timbre could be the reason for using them in some cases, because they can be a counterpoint, i think that's how they're usually used in bop, because you can play high tempos and complex rhythms with them but you don't hear people doing that usually, perhaps due to the pervasive influence of the lionel hampton/milt jackson laidback vibraphone style

good point, wc. I'm a big vibes fan from way back though. I love it all. The bop,the out there, and the EZ Listening. Good call on the Milt Jacks, that dude is dope...... big fan, thanks to some Riverside reissues.

Oh, you should both check out this Cannonball/Milt album then, if you haven't already. My personal issues aside, they're both on top form.

Good vibes wise (that one was intentional, sorry), one of the exceptions to my general aversion to the things is the Jamal playing on the Sonny Murray version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow, from the Wildflowers 70s new york loft jazz comp. That shit is amazing. Definitely worth tracking down, but sadly can't find it on the youtube right now.

Now onto:

 


Gotta say, not loving this so far. But I will persevere a while...

pretty good, but I don't like it nearly as much as the new Last Electro Acoustic album...

one of the most fun bands to see live...if you see them and you don't dance with them than you're dead
