Fiendishly hard, probably! I am not sure I can choose between Bags and the Vibes President.

Milt Jackson - Bags & Trane radicalized me and I haven't looked back since!

Bags for me, all things considered.

But I love Hutcherson, and for individual vibes album I'd be hard pressed between some of his Blue Notes ...

Then, there is Walt Dickerson ... also Red Norvo ... Teddy Charles, Eddie Costa, Khan Jamal, Terry Gibbs, Cal Tjader ...

btw, what about them vibories?



Quote
The Viborie is a vibraphone with an attachment consisting of a three-octave keyboard with regular black and white piano keys, connected with a box that is placed on top of the vibes. The box contains small cylindrical solenoids, one to each note, to which are attached small bakelite mallets with cork tips. The unit was invented by Jack Harris and named by Leonard Feather.

I like Milt Jackson a lot but voted "someone else" - Gary McFarland.  His writing and arranging outstrip his vibe skills but he does qualify for the poll.

Great thread. I don't know much jazz-vibes outside of Lionel Hampton, but am now sampling tracks from Milt Jackson and they are fantastic.

I love Lionel too (that Telarc date with the "Golden Men of Jazz" is so darn good), but you gotta go hear Things Are Getting Better and Bean Bags! Just listened for the first time to Plenty, Plenty Soul - with a superstar big band - and that's good too. Milt set his vibraphone to fewer rpms which translates to shorter/less vibrato and a slightly more percussive sound. But when he really sings, as on "Heartstrings," it gets you thinking, wow, how does a percussion instrument sing like that?!
