I think I should get credit for saying xylophone for Lionel Hampton. I said "horns' generic for Chuck Mangione, but in my mind's eye I was thinking trumpet. Otherwise I got everyone else correct !

Close, but.............................

The vibraphone is a percussion instrument. It looks like a xylophone but the bars are made of aluminum instead of wood.
Hampton was one of the first jazz vibraphone players.
He didn't play the Xylophone............. no credit !

So close...

I got all correct except Lionel Hampton. I said "marimba". I couldn't think of the word "vibraphone", even though I know what it is.

But technically, one could also say piano or drums for LH and still be correct.

Technically, there's not one person on that list who wasn't proficient in more than one instrument......... but they are identified with one in particular.................
I recall Sammy Davis, Jr. walking thru the quintet on the Carson show, playing each instrument in turn.......... but if you were asked what Sammy was, well, he was a vocalist .............
