The vibes are cool, man. That's all they can be.They can swing. Oh, they can swing like a mother, but they always stay cool. Walt Dickerson is cool. Lionel Hampton was cool. Really cool. Bobby Hutcherson was soon to be cool. Probably the coolest of them all. But in between Dickerson showed 'em how to improvise.
These side long tracks sport a pair of drummers and not a horn to be seen!! I think this record shows a foresight rarely seen in 1964.
