Rabble Without A Cause
Wednesday January 1st, 2020 with Bruce Walton
New Year's vibraphone party

Opening another year of Rabble with music from Walt Dickerson, Bobby Hutcherson and Gary Burton. A healthy and happy 2020 to all.
Unlike its cousins the marimba (wooden) and the xylophone (metal), which are ancient and existed in multiple local forms around the world, the vibraphone (metal) is quite recent - developed in the US in the 1920's. Sometimes called a vibraharp in the early days. Other notable players have included Red Norvo, Lionel Hampton, Milt Jackson, Cal Tjader, and, more recently, Joe Locke and Stefon Harris.
