 Nope, there's no speed manipulation here...This record really is THAT fast.

Johnny Lytle is the man playing the vibraphone here, and his speedy hands caused jazz vibes legend Lionel Hampton to call Johnny the world's greatest vibraphone player.

Now, speed in itself certainly doesn't make a great musician or record (this is music, not sports after all) but something about this side is just so damn cool. In addition to the great vibes work, I love the lightning like organ stabs, and the way the drummer keeps it swingin'.

from 1965...
