HAPPY 50th... um... DAY!

To celebrate this momentous occasion I was originally going to play 50 Cent, but then I had a change of heart and I decided to play a song from the 1950's instead. Here is one of the two best Vibraphonists ever (Cal Tjader is the other).

I'm easily distracted by t-shirts about
 being distracted by vibraphonists 
(Buy me and take me to Williamsburg!!)

Behold, the wonder of Lionel Hampton and his Quintet with one of his classics, and just under that, a bonus Jam Session from the Apollo Theater in 1954... Enjoy the epic, 17 minute, scream filled album version of Flying Home that will have you coming back through the next 50 songs.

Song #50: Lionel Hampton Quintet - Flying Home (buy)

BONUS SONG: Lionel Hampton Jam Session, The Apollo, 1954
