There aren't as many famous vibraphonists in jazz as, say, piano or saxophone players, but the best of the breed are as influential as almost any of the horn blower or key tickler. In this episode, the boys talk about two mallet-masters from the pages of history, and two sponsored by Blue Note in more recent years—a phenom from the early 2000s, and a brand new poster boy. Pop matters looks as two fine acts from the eighties that just don't share much in common—the Go Go's and Thin White Rope.
