I must apologise for the lack of posts in the last few days, I've been struggling a bit with illness and a lack of motivation. What better way to get back in the "vibe" than this excellent album of jazzy, vibes themed tracks by Bernard Lubat and Herve Roy. Each number has something unique that makes it stand out and the groovy sound is complimented by guitar, piano, organ and some very nice drumming. Of course the star of the show is the vibraphone and outside of "Viberations" by Francis Coppieters you wont find better playing than on this record. While mostly in the realm of jazz, "Pop Vibes" and "Soleil Dans L'oeil" are more rock orientated. My personal favourite would be the fun and frenetic "Bahia Bossa Nova" which actually comes off sounding more like a lost nugget from a 1970's Italian soundtrack rather that anything latin. I can't recommend this album any more highly, it's top shelf.

Hi, I'm not too well myself these days, so I empathise with you.

I love this library album though, very nice indeed.

Dear Master of the Gardens of Frolicking Delights:
I am glad that YOU are still around blogging & sharing
whilst other fine Easy Listening Blogs have closed down
or gone underground to serve an elite clientele. But -
where is the fun in catering to "invited guests only".
It is - and should be - that the web.2.0 is an OPEN
and FREE thing - not hiding like a bitten dog in P2P-
