"I actually came across this disc because I enjoy the sound of vibes, and was asking friends for the name of an artist who is known for playing the instrument. I found out that in the jazz world, where vibes are most frequently used, Bobby Hutcherson was the preeminent name. Well recorded vibes are a sinfully rich aural treat, especially on a good sound system, unfortunately the music played on them, which is often modern "smooth jazz" is enough to lull you to sleep. That may be OK for background music, but if you want to hear creative and energetic interplay- not to mention Bobby's virtuosity with the instrument, I highly recommend this disc. It was made with I believe cuban musiscians, and is rich with sexy Latin rythmns. The various percussion instruments add a great variety to the sound. This is a disc I would recommend not only for it's musical content, but also for the pure pleasure of the rich sound of the recording. Treat yourself- you won't be disappointed!"
