The Vibesman thrives on its multicultural beat with a set of music that captured the attention of many. Grounded in jazz, Latin jazz, and salsa, Mike offers a unique group sound through his music, playing, and instrumentation. Along with the vibes, this recording features conga master Papo Pepin; Harry Adorno on timbales; and bassist Ruben Rodriguez. The fabric of the music here is bolstered by the flute of Mauricio Smith Jr. and the tenor saxophone of Chicago’s Jim Gailloreto. For the surprise grand finale, Mike is joined by highly regarded salsa singer and longtime colleague Julio Salgado.
