Sadly the intro and opening head weren’t captured, but the solos and final head were and, after listening to it back, I thought it might be worth uploading. Recorded live in performance in October 2013.

Julian Woods- electric guitar
Colin Bugby- piano
Nick Woods- bass guitar
Ben Johnson- drums

truetunes:

John Coltrane - Africa

That was intense

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.

that 1:14 vibraphone solo break

Probably my favourite jazz standard, and Gary Burton’s solo is super.

Bill Evans - ‘Midnight Mood’

The archetypal solo Bill Evans recording. Beautiful rich harmonies, in a unique interpretation of Joe Zawinul’s classic tune.
