Terry Gibbs & Terry Pollard
From a 1956 episode of the Tonight Show with Steve Allen, here's vibraphonist Terry Gibbs in a sort of musical vibra-duel with his pianist, Terry Pollard (and she's a fine vibraphonist as well !!!):
Thanks to Professor Patrick Boyle who recently forwarded that one to me.
And here's some more great footage of Terry Gibbs in action, this time featured with the Buddy Rich big band from a 1948 short.
I think it's pretty safe to say that Terry Gibbs is the Buddy Rich of the vibraphone !
