This project report is focused on the development of jazz vibraphone playing in the twentieth century. This report is concentrated upon two players of this time period. The first chapter is about the life and playing of Milt Jackson. His lyrical and smooth style set a standard for expressiveness which modern-day players are still attempting to achieve. The second chapter analyzes Gary Burton's life and playing. His four-mallet approach brought a new element of harmonic capabilities to the instrument. The last chapter of this report is focused on the impact that these two players have had on professionals and students of today and how their styles are continuing to develop.
