Jazz for the Jet Set is an album by American jazz vibraphonist Dave Pike which was recorded in 1965 for the Atlantic label.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
This disc is a bit unusual in a few ways. Vibraphonist Dave Pike sticks here exclusively to the marimba, while pianist Herbie Hancock is heard throughout on organ, an instrument he rarely played again. The band also includes two trumpeters (most notably Clark Terry who has a few short solos) and a rhythm section with guitarist Billy Butler. Most of the music consists of obscurities and is open to the influences of the boogaloo and pop rhythms of the era; highlights include Hancock’s “Blind Man, Blind Man,” “Sunny” and “Devilette.” An interesting effort (https://goo.gl/jLQ2Wh).
