VIG TOMMY (VIB)

Budapest, Ungheria. 14/7/1938.

Ha frequentato il Conservatorio Bartok della sua città, che sarà costretto a lasciare durante l’insurrezione del 1956, per emigrare negli Stati Uniti. A New York ha frequentato la Julliard University, ha suona con Bill Evans, con Duke Jordan e con Peter Ind. Nel 1965 è andato a Las Vegas dove si è dedicato alla composizione e ha lavorato molto con la “Neophonic Orchestra” di Los Angeles. Ha collaborato con Don Ellis e nel 1967 è stato indicato dal Down Beat come il miglior vibrafonista emergente. In seguito ha lavorato soprattutto negli studi. Non ha avuto il plauso della critica malgrado abbia dimostrato di essere un discreto compositore ed un vibrafonista originale. Ha fatto anche vari tentativi per mettere sù una sua grande orchestra.
