Roger is the UK’s premier vibes master. “Beaujolais frequently used his vibes atmospherically, lacing his cohort’s solos with glowing clusters and graceful little counter-phrases. But he also turned on the heat – in full flight with two mallets in each hand, he gives the world’s best vibes players a run for their money”. James Griffiths – The Guardian.
