Used in jazz since the 1930s, the vibraphone was popularised by Milt Jackson, who recorded under the name of his group, the Milt Jackson Quartet (later renamed the Modern Jazz Quartet).

This week, we’ll also hear the vibes-player/composer in the company of John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk.
