While vibist Dick Sisto continues to be in comparison to both Gary Burton and Milt Jackson, his own lyrical design manages to synthesize both without ever succumbing to imitation. Sisto started playing vibes in quality school and continuing studying through university, ultimately playing in organizations that included long term luminaries Maurice White colored and David Sanborn. After relocating to California in the first ’70s, Sisto became involved with several tasks, both within and beyond traditional jazz contexts, from support Swami Kriyananda and poet Gary Snyder to taking part in Thomas Buckner’s Ghost Opera Organization. Eventually establishing basics within the Midwest, Sisto added teaching to his resumé having a three-year stint in the Univeristy of Kentuky, accompanied by several treatment centers and educational concerts. All this offers coincided with worldwide touring and recordings with, amongst others, Fred Hersch, Kenny Werner, and Barry Ries.
