I was having an exchange with another drummer in which both of us were using “vibing” to mean “disparaging a player on the bandstand during a jam session.” On a whim, I searched DFO for “vibing” and all of the instances that came up seemed to mean something like “grooving” or “being in sync with.” What does this word mean to you?

Vibes can be good or bad, but if a person is "vibing" you, it's bad.

Its a younger person phrase for grooving along with somebody, in the same 'vibe'.
You know, knodding your heads together all sympatico.
Think of the image of Taj Wilkenfeld playing bass with Vinnie.

I get entirely different kinds of vibes when I think of images of Tal Wilkenfeld... ;)

your second definition of being in sync with someone is familiar, and I’ve also heard it used to refer to onset of recreational chemicals in a pleasing manner
