I've had a couple of requests to repost this record. So here tis.
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. Lionel Hampton was cool. Lionel Hampton was cool. Really cool. Bobby Hutcherson was 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 freaking love these kinds of lps. Not your standard line up but somehow that's OK. This stuff surely has influenced some of my favorite modern lps.
Grab a cool whiskey and watch the sun go down on these last days of summer. This could be your soundtrack.
