Lennie Hibbert - More Creation

Hibbert was born in Mavis Bank, Jamaica in 1928. At the age of eight he began attending the Alpha School, where he joined the school band as a drummer. He left the school in 1944 and played in several small orchestras before joining the Military Band in 1946. While with the Military Band he taught himself to play the vibraphone. In 1955 he returned to Alpha as bandmaster,[2] his students including Floyd Lloyd and Vin Gordon. He worked as a live musician in jazz groups in the 1960s, and frequently worked with the Sound Dimension band, recording some of the best-known riddims for Clement “Coxsone” Dodd. (Wikipedia)

Lennie Hibbert is one smooth operator. Dude is a weekend bbq favorite, and then some, around my way. More Creation is his second long-player outing for Studio One in 1971. Here’s the first. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly. Dig it!
