Huddersfield Jazz is proud to welcome Vibe-ology to Huddersfield Jazz and Café Society.

Biog:

Relative newcomers to the Northern jazz scene, Vibe-ology puts a spin on the traditional organ quartet format. Using vibes as a frontline instrument, the group was inspired by similar lineups led by organist “Big” John Patton in the ‘60s and vibist Bobby Hutcherson in the early ‘00s.

Featuring members of New York Brass Band, The New Mastersounds, The Haggis Horns and many more, Vibe-ology plays standards but also rarely-heard yet tuneful material. Compositions by vibists Milt Jackson, Bobby Hutcherson, Cal Tjader, Hammond organists Jimmy Smith, John Patton and guitarists Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell and many more make up a varied and exciting set.

Line-Up:

John Settle – Vibes
Al Morrison – Guitar
Bob Birch – Hammond Organ
Caroline Boaden – Drums

 

Accolades:

“An interesting collection of sounds and colours from a seldom seen and unusual instrumentation playing jazz, blues, Latin and funk”
