Milt Jackson, vibraphonist supreme 1 of 2
Bruce Wells Sr. November 21, 04
Milt Jackson is/was absolutely the greatest vibraphone player ever. His lyricism and touch made his music absolutely listenable and loveable. His drive for bebop was impeccable. Even though he played with 2 mallets instead of the current 4 mallet craze, no one has been able to come close to the overall effect that he had upon you when he played a ballad. There are many great players today, but none, none like Milt.
