Vibes & Drums

Some nice duets today here brought to us by drummer Hamid Drake and vibraphonist Pasquale Mirra:

I really dig the drum/vibraphone duet combination and that particular sonic percussion texture. Reminds me of the Ed Blackwell and Karl Berger duet recordings from awhile ago. I also heard vibraphonist Jay Hoggard and drummer Yoron Israel play like this two years ago at the 2009 PASIC conference in Indianapolis. This is definitely a setting I intend to explore myself in the future as an aspiring vibraphonist.
