The Milt Jackson Quartet, featuring Gary Burton; “A Night in Tunisia”
Milt Jackson - vibraphone
Gary Burton - vibraphone
Makoto Ozone - piano
Jaribu Shahid - bass
Tani Tabbal - drums
I could listen to these guys all day! As much as I love MJ, I have to say Burton’s four mallet technique yields a richer sound.
A footnote of interest to Baby Boomers who grew up in Chicago:
My first exposure to the vibes was by “Aunt Dody” on “Lunch Time Little Theater” on WGN TV, Chicago, way back when when I was but a wee sprig. I loved the instrument then, and was impressed by Aunt Dody wielding three mallets. I’ve recently learned that besides doing kiddy shtik on local TV, Dardanelle “Aunt Dody” Hadley was an accomplished Jazz musician who performed and recorded with Jazz stars Bucky Pizzarelli, George Duvivier, and Grady Tate.
