Lionel Hampton: Vibraphonist and drummer. The first great vibraphone soloist in jazz, Hampton began his career as a drummer in the Chicago Defender Newsboys' band. By the late 1920s he had moved to the West Coast and was billed as 'The World's Fastest Drummer' at Frank Sebastian's New Cotton Club in Culver City.

He doubled on vibes after Louis Armstrong famously invited him to take a solo on the instrument in his 1930 disc of Memories of You. Hampton could always be relied on to produce long, melodically interesting solos on ballads, but he was also a hard swinging up-tempo player, and this is what led Benny Goodman to recruit him to join his quartet in 1936.
