Label: World Improvised Music
World Improvised Music features the work of vibraphone virtuoso Ed Saindon. Coming from the "four mallet school," Ed Saindon has developed and continues to refine a pianistic approach to mallet playing which involves a consistent utilization of all four mallets along with a variety of dampening techniques. Saindon has absorbed and transferred the influences from the piano lineage that stretches from Walter and Tatum up to the present. Originally a drummer, Saindon began playing the vibraphone along with the piano while attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston from 1972-1976.
