Pure Jazz Vibes was developed in collaboration with Chris Poehler of Lujon Audio, who arranged and oversaw the entire sample recording as well as contributing to the production of the sample library itself. It was recorded using a 70's Musser Century Vibraphone. The Musser vibraphone is a legendary instrument, extensively used by vibraphone masters such as Gary Burton, Lionel Hampton, Milt Jackson, Bobby Hutcherson, Mike Mainieri, and many others.
The recording session was engineered by Michael Aarvold at the WaterSound Productions studio in the heart of Studio City, California.
