one of the all time greats by this man, only he and Milt Jackson and possibly Cal Tjader are in the same league
love the vibes. they make the song.

Lionel is swing incarnate.
He sure knows how to play them vibes!!!!
Great tunes! I'm loving Lionel Hampton's jazz music
Hamp hipped me to vibes,addiction is now waoise than ever

There's also a nice 9 minute version put out as a Victory (?) disk - the tracks they recorded specially for the troops in World War 2. Roy Eldridge comes in on the trumpet towards the end.
Worth groovin to!

Flying Home #2 is better...
The guy going "yuurrgh" in the background was Mr. Hampton himself.
it's not a xylophone it's a vibraphone. xylophones are kid's toys.
This version really swings out, excellent I've heard Flying Home at least a hundred times and this version is the best.
yeah hamp! you never die !!!
this is good
makes me wanna bop!
¡¡¡Que bueno és!!!
To bad about the guy going "yuuurgh" in the background all the time
Can't get enough xylophone, I always say.
Lionel , I 've friend whit this name: "Lionel" !!!
Thou shalt not get the better of Lionel Hampton openers .. igOr . http://igorogogo.com
Somewhere, I commented on this track and got the details slightly wrong. There's a better version in Last.fm under Illinois Jacquet, who was the horn player who did the historic original honking sax solos.
his voices: aaahh ee ee ee yeeeeh aa aaaaa aa yeehheee
hampton is really big composer...please listen drum solos from 'crazy hamp'
extremely hot swing; not very ingenious, but more than fascinating
love this track! that xylophone is fantastic.
