Vibes On Velvet - Terry Gibbs     Vibes On Velvet - Terry Gibbs



Comments

-

Inside The Groove

Relaxed but confortable tension of Terry Gibbs' “velvet” vibes.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Terry's metallic vibraphone sounds sharp and crisp with beautiful lines, while the entire mood is between Jazz and Easy-Listening. But it's still worth listening as a Jazz album, with saxophone ensemble comfortably arranged by Manny Albam.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

8 out of 10
