Ted Piltzecker has a long history of traveling the world, spreading his lyrical approach to playing the vibraphone. He often collaborates with fine local players, and for this performance he has recruited the Lawrence University Faculty Jazz Ensemble.
For the curious: Two up-and-coming vibraphonists that Ted recommends looking for are Isaiah Petrie who is studying in Kansas City, MO, and Oliver Mayman in Ann Arbor, MI.
