Michael Hatfield Vibraphone Quartet
Well, sometime people get overwhelmed with all the big instruments and the unorthodox way it all looks. So I still love to get out and play in the good old quartet format for some serious standard swinging, and chasing after Pat Metheny covers, alongside a pile of my own tunes. We even dress up. But not in this photo, for that, you'll need the photo page.
Well, me. Then I really love a guitarist, electric bassist and drums for my money. Everybody knows their job, and yet everything could almost stop, and music continues with just one guy. It's just a lovely dance, and there are only some many guys that are comfortable doing that kind of dancing. Kinda like tango meets cha-cha with some hip-hop funk sauce. Did I say that?
I thought I made that clear.... Oh, I guess it's OK to throw in a sax or something...
This band works more because it's almost normal. Almost.
Can we hear some tracks?
OK, for some live action, go here: Vibe Quartet
