     Vibist Terry Gibbs pays homage to jazz hero Lionel Hampton, "Father of the Vibes" whom the jazz community sadly lost in August 2002. Performing songs closely associated with Hampton, Gibbs captures the spirit and vibrancy of his hero and mentor, lovingly known as "Gates". Gibbs also offers new songs, which he wrote in Hampton's memory. Fans of Gibbs will be excited to hear him on vocals for the first time in more than 50 years (!), and perform a new song playing the piano as he would a vibraphone - with just two fingers - a rare technique, perfected by Hampton. The recording also features some outstanding playing from Hammond B3 man Joey Defrancesco and tenor saxophonist Pete Christlieb.

    Personnel: 
    Terry Gibbs - (Vibes, Piano, Vocals), Pete Christlieb - (Tenor Sax), Joey Defrancesco - (Organ), Mike Melvoin - (Piano), Anthony Wilson - (Guitar), Dave Carpenter - (Bass), Jeff Hamilton - (Drums), Frank Pusch - (Percussion, track 7), Barbara Morrison - (Vocals, Track 9)
