"GOOD VIBES, JAZZ ON THE VIBRAPHONE"
This program explores the jazz greats of the vibes like Lionel Hampton, Milt Jackson, Cal Tjader and others. Jim talks a little about them and play some of their music.
"We enjoyed a warm jazz program on a bleak winter afternoon last February. Jim Cooper presented “Good Vibes” a historical tribute to jazz vibraphone players. Mr. Cooper, a jazz vibraphone player, interspersed video clips of the greats with a performance in each musicians’ style. This program was hit with our audience as it was musically entertaining and educationally stimulating."
