Manhattan Vibes

  • Christos Rafalides - vibrapnone & marimba
  • John Benitez - bass
  • Steve Hass - drums
  • Luisito Quintero - percussion
  • Special Guest: Randy Brecker - Vinny Valentino - Marry Wormworth


Wholly percussion-oriented Manhattan Vibes throbs from one piece to the  next.... Christos Rafalides is forging a new direction for the  vibraphone/marimba. Rhythmically driven and spatially exact, Christos  Rafalides' music reaches deep into the Latin consciousness and pulls out  the perfect vibe.

On his first CD as a leader, vibraphonist Christos Rafalides' Manhattan  Vibes has recorded an amazingly creative and eclectic debut. Listening to Christos' handling of standards such as Fool On The Hill,  Caravan and All The Things You Are has made me a fan of the vibraphone. This CD is a delight! I'll look for more from Christos Rafalides and  Manhattan Vibes.
