This week the show is all about the vibraphone or vibes with a variety of music demonstrating the power and wonder of that singular instrument. Jazz history is full of great players from Milt Jackson through to Gary Burton but I'm going to look at some modern practitioners on this show, One of those is Dan McCarthy with this weeks featured album City Abstract.
