Manhattan Vibes – Blue November
Top New York City vibist Christos Rafalides has released his second recording with Manhattan Vibes titled Blue November. The recording features Sergio Salvatore on piano, Mike Pope on bass and Vince Cherico on drums. The group’s sound is from a vibraphone centric perspective with shades of Latin consciousness and elements of dance and groove. As a quartet, each member brings a vast array of influences and musicality which transcends musical boundaries.
From the intensity of “Red and Black” to the airy tenderness of “Days of Silence,” the music exudes the pure essence of the quartet – one of mutual respect. Click HERE to purchase the CD.
