Join the Crocodile for a two-hour study of the melodic percussion instrument, the vibraphone. This special retrospective features music from the likes of Milt “Bags” Johnson, Tito Puente, and Lionel Hampton, as well as artists from outside the jazz world such as Gong and Frank Zappa. Tune in to hear many great examples of this versatile and incredibly trippy instrument.

Guest curated by the programmer’s father, George Trager; with additional suggestions from Stanley Naftaley and Marta Ulvaeus.

Jazz Straight Ahead is on Thursdays from 1-3pm, and is regularly hosted by Stanley Naftaley.
