Vibraphone, Marimbas and More on 89.1 Jazz

Mar 5, 2013

We played various approaches of vibraphone and marimbas with some piano, bass and drums. The initial inspiration for the feature came from "The Bespoke Man's Narrative", the new CD by pianist/composer Aaron Diehl featuring vibraphonist Warren Wolf. Diehl's debut CD has been highly anticipated for over two years!

Aaron Diehl's new album - "The Bespoke Man's Narrative" (EPK)

We showcased Aaron Diehl's musical prowess with a cover and an original this morning. We also hit on some vibes with piano from Cecilia Smith and Marjorie Hyams with George Shearing for Women's History Month. Milt Jackson with the Modern Jazz Quartet, Bobby Hutcherson, Jason Marsalis, Johnny Lytle, Joe Locke and Stefon Harris were among other vibraphonists we featured this morning!

Thanks for listening. More to come later in the week!
