I'm still in catch-up mode, having taken off most of May from blogging due to pacing for my fibromyalgia. My husband Brad and I were busy wrapping up our year-long outdoor fitness challenge, which you can read about here:

And now, back to our regularly-scheduled programming.

This year I'll be taking a once-a-month look at specific instruments and showcasing five songs or tunes which place that instrument front and center.

This year's feature is called Spotlight On...

...and for our fifth installment, I'm venturing out from the primal body instruments of hand-clapping, whistling and vocal harmonies to explore percussion. Following April's look at drums, here are five songs which shine a spotlight on the vibraphone or the vibes.

1 - Flying Home - Lionel Hampton - 1957

2 - Caj Tjader - Maramoor Mambo - 1965

3 - Heartstrings - Milt Jackson - 1957

4 - So Many Things - Gary Burton Trio - 1961

5 - Head Start - Bobby Hutcherson - 1966
