(January 31, 2017): Lionel Hampton – Vibraphone Blues

From the 1965 album, You Better Know It!!!. One of the great things about practicing law in Idaho during the mid-late 1980s was the Annual Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival held in Moscow, Idaho, at the University of Idaho’s Kibbie Dome.  This was at a time Hampton was still appearing and jamming on both vibes and piano.  This tune is a Hampton original. Recorded and mastered by Rudy Van Gelder in his New Jersey studio. With a stellar lineup – Ben Webster, Clark Terry, Hank Jones, Milt Hinton and Osie Johnson.
