Dave Pike? Yeah man! Not nearly enough recordings in print by this underrated vibeist. "Pike's Groove" is a great one indeed. Well recorded by Criss Cross. (Also recommended is: 'Bop Head' 1998-Ubiquity.)
Some might not dig Pike's humming along while he plays, but I feel it only adds to the infectious swing.
I don't think he's recorded since 2000. At 73 yrs old, I wonder if he's still active in jazz?


Marc: thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. A true public service. And boy do I also miss those record/CD stores!
