Edition details



"For his debut, Brisbane born vibist has tapped instinctively into the elegant sound of the vibraphone with a maturity way beyond his 20 years. His sometimes, chiming, sometimes modal or swinging compositions utilising warm melodies are beautifully subtle vehicles for his expressive style. Never overtly virtuosic, he plays with controlled finesse. A student of Joe Locke, Whiting gathered a first rate band to record in New York including ex-pat bassist Sam Anning and pianist Steve Newcomb. John Wikan’s textural drumming and notably his cymbal work particularly complements the recording as does the German saxophonist Stefan Schmid on four of the eight track."

“I love the honesty and emotional directness in his playing and writing. He is his own man. I’m excited to see where his head and heart will take him as he continues to grow. If this recording is any indication, it’s going to be some beautiful places.”

– Joe Locke, Vibraphonist/Composer/Educator, NYC Jan 2011
