Perhaps the most venerated of all percussion instruments, the sweet and soothing vibraphone distinguishes much of the finest jazz and Latin-jazz recordings. The vibes can be very hip, as in hypnotic. A "xylophone for adults," known in Hawaii as the "white man's bamboo organ," the vibes can lend exoticism or pass as a standard instrument. Great jazz vibes players have tended to explore Latin music and double on marimba. Tito Puente and other great Latin stars made extensive use of vibes in the small mambo groups of the 1950s.
