“Arthur Lipner wields his mallets as if they were extra limbs on "Modern Vibe," the jazz vibist and marimba man's fifth CD as a bandleader. It's polished, but it's got edge. Radio should dig what Lipner does with Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine"; it's the paradigm of what a modern vibe should sound like.” - Billboard

"I would like to think that the vibraphone and marimba are entering into a much belated renaissance and that Arthur Lipner occupies a prominent role in the foregrounding of those instruments in jazz and popular music...This is jazz vibes at its smoothest and most subtle... (London)

“Delightful is perhaps the best term to describe Arthur Lipner's cover of the pop classic “Love the One You're With.” That's the worst I can say about his new CD, Modern Vibe. On an album that's chock full of excellent tunes, it's difficult to say which is the best. The album's closer, the high-energy “Blue Tango,” is the perfect finishing touch—satisfying, yet making you want more.”

“You've got to admire...this extremely melodic and jazz/worldbeat - conscious vibes artist. Hopefully Lipner's very melodic writing and creative performing style will find an outlet among fans...Another unique element here is Lipner's affinity for Brazilian music, on the rolling samba grooves of Djavan's "Flor de Lis" and, more unexpectedly, the oft-covered (but never like this) "Let's Stay Together."

“Lipner’s virtuosity and “monster chops” are evident on each track of this cd.” Percussive Notes
