Several weeks ago, Bret Primack flew out to Los Angeles to interview vibraphonist Terry Gibbs at home on camera. Bret recently edited the fabulous results into mini topic clips and uploaded them to YouTube a rich oral history by one of jazz’s greatest vibists.

O’s Place Praises Terry Gibbs in Latest Review

“Terry Gibbs   –   92 Years Young: Jammin’ At The Gibb’s House   4/3

O’s Notes: We have much respect for a 93-year-old musician who can still cut it! In the case of vibraphonist Terry Gibbs, we have much love and admiration for a man who remains in rare form performing with a swinging quartet coaxed by his son, drummer Gerry Gibbs, pianist John Campbell and Mike Gurrola on bass. Yes, Gerry suggested the jam session in dad’s living room and we are now blessed with a wonderful recording of fourteen classics. There’s no showboating, but a heckofa lot of good music that will satisfy a large audience in almost any setting! Hats off to Terry!”

Congratulations to Terry Gibbs for reaching #1 on the jazz radio charts with his newest album, “Jammin’ at the Gibbs House!” Anything is possible, even at 92 years old!

Here is what Terry’s son, Gerry, had to say about the exciting news:
“WELL THIS A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT FOR MY 93 YEAR OLD POPS AND MYSELF ………………………………………………………Today my Pops CD TERRY GIBBS 92 YEARS YOUNG (which I am on) WENT TO #1 on the jazz radio charts across the country ..It is the last thing he will ever record and I am so proud and happy for him. He had been in retirement and I talked him into recording for the label I have been with for 10 years and he did and now he has hit #1 at 93 years of age…YIPEEE……An on my end – today I left the charts after 24 weeks with my newest CD “Thrasher People” which made it my 4th cd to go to #1 in a row on the jazz radio charts . Today I found out that even though I left the charts for this year so far my Thrasher People CD Weather Or Not – IS THE #1 MOST PLAYED CD IN THE COUNTRY ON RADIO so far this year…..POPS & SON TEAM…..We were failures last week but for this week were not……Chances are good though that we will both go back to complete failures next week !”
Way to go Terry!
