Forum Topic: Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse
Does anyone know who plays the vibes solo on Bennett and Winehouse's "Body and Soul" on Duets II? I don't have the album. Even though I've looked everywhere online I can think of, there is no credit for vibraphone that I can see.
Forum Topic: Philly/City People!
I’ll be headed to Philly in a couple of weeks for the Weiss festival and vibes workshop! I’m planning on bringing my vibes but am unsure how I will actually get them to and from where the workshop is. Does anyone ever use the bus or subway? I’ll have a rock and roller cart with everything on that. How about taking an Uber for the first trip to have them there? Please let me know your thoughts on this!
Also, who’s going to be at the workshop? Can’t wait!!
Below is some general balafon history that I send to my students. Hopefully, this provides some traditional context to several West African countries where it is played. I’ll let the info speak for itself and keep checking in on member conversations.
Important reminder: The video lessons I am uploading do not represent a traditional context or style I learned in Burkina Faso. I am using my own 4-mallet approach to connect rhythm ideas and grooves that can be played on any mallet instrument.

PS: James Clear's stuff is also awesome. I don't subscribe to many lists, but his is one of them...great writer.

Forum Topic: Kat players _ what is your amp preference?
Pardon if this has already been addressed, but could I ask those who are Kat owners to suggest an amplifier that you use or really like? There is such variety available that it would be helpful knowing what to prioritize when trying different amps at Guitar Center.
Thanks in advance!!
