ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Musicians will often describe themselves as being on a journey –
starting from their days as young and eager students and continuing
while they mature into professionals. My particular journey is
eloquently portrayed in the cover of this recording which conjures the
echoing walls of a warehouse in Kozani, Greece. From there, the
vibraphone was the vehicle that brought me to Manhattan, a place where
I could learn and be inspired by some if the world's finest musicians.

That inspiration would ultimately give birth to the
Manhattan Vibes concept: a jazz quartet led by the vibraphone.

As this concept evolved, Sergio, Mike, and Vince were simultaneously on their own
unique journeys, the paths of which converged with mine in the summer
of 2008. Our diverse backgrounds allowed us to interpret the material
on this recording in a way that I believe transcends traditional
musical boundaries creating a sound of its own. At the same time, our
goal is to preserve our collective heritage in contemporary American
grooves, odd-meter rhythmic progressions, and world music.

The truth is that there is no final destination on the musician's journey and I
am very pleased to offer this account of four kindred spirits who have
chosen to travel together.

Thanks for listening!

– Christos Rafalides
