Rivets loosen and get noisy. The omega uses stainless steel nuts and bolts. It's so much quieter.  This is a musser. I like playing mussers and am glad to play them when I travel, but they make noise. Team Omega said to Malletech, that…

Here's a duet I made for a student a while back. It's Donna Lee and It's in the key of D. So if you're working on the tune, transpose it and play. I play the head in and take a chorus. Then I comp for you and then you take the head out. It…

This is a video of the Charlie Kunz band featuring Teddy Brown. It's cool to watch just to see teddy.  But go to 10:22 and watch the vibe player. He dampens with his finger. Why? I think because there was not pedal on the vibraphone. …

Here's a new version of my confusing composition 'Verwirrspiel'. I am happy that I was able to produce the video for the Berlin-Neukölln music school, where I have been working with great colleagues for years.
