MaMa & the Kids at Tynemouth

How many Swiss vibes players have you heard this week? Not many, I warrant. I thought I'd had my quota when I heard Raymond Graisier at Thursday's Benny Goodman concert where he brilliantly took on the mantle of Lionel Hampton.
M.Graisier turned up again today with the strangely named "MaMa & the Kids" not only vibing but also, drumming, washboarding and vocalising. Amazing!
He also duetted with the leader Levon who was also an excellent vibes player from Switzerland.
Jacques Ducrot blew alto and clarinet as well as playing drums when Graisier was on vibes. Pierre-Alain Marat, on guitar, also happened to be Levon's father. Henri Lemaire played bass.
A swingy band slightly more modern than the previous outfit.
