Mike Dillon is a versatile vibraphonist and percussionist who was originally from San Antonio, Texas and is currently based in Kansas City.

He has appeared in settings ranging from funk and soul jazz to free improvisations and has been a member of Critters Buggin, Les Claypoo’s Fancy Band and Garage A Trois, leading groups of his own (including Mike Dillon’s Go-Go Jungle), and working with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and with a trio called “The Dead Kenny G’s.”

Bassist James Singleton has long been a major fixture in the New Orleans music scene, being a member of the Astral Project and working with John Scofield, John Medeski, John Abercrombie, Ellis Marsalis, Eddie Harris, Lionel Hampton, Arnett Cobb, Banu Gibson, Chet Baker, James Booker, and many others.

In this intriguing set of free improvisations (the first one lasts 33 minutes), a LiveStream from July 19, 2010, Mike Dillon switches constantly between his percussion and vibes while James Singleton provides a strong forward momentum and often hard-swinging lines while reacting constantly to Dillon’s playing, even playing a little bit of trumpet.

The spontaneous music holds one’s interest throughout.
