This cogent statement belongs to this extraordinary gifted musician - Gary Burton - who, through the years has been able to make enjoy the world as one of the most brilliant vibraphonists ever born since from my standpoint Lionel Hampton. As a matter of fact his flamboyant musicianship has always under the service of the music by itself. He has rejected the idea of settling back into comfortable patterns. He confess : "I began to pay more attention to the power of melody..." And that's a common feature among the greatest jazz musicians. His grandness and at the same time humbleness are more than evident.
So his musical improvement has enhanced continuously, because of the fact he has observed and studied carefully, the trajectory of Luis Armstrong, Srah Vaughan or Carmen Mc Rae. He played with Stan Getz between 1964 and 1966, that's another remarkable point to his successful career.
This album is constitutes by itself, a profound shift, with the invaluable support of his friends. Pat Metheny, Bob James, Peter Erskine. I knew about him for the first time with an outstanding work in collaboration with Chick Corea in Munich, where both of them simply shone. His untiring dedication, innovative search and pleasant tone make of this album a wise choice in case you accept the challenge. And believe me, this will be the first step in your collection. I swear it. There are many interesting tracks along this Cd, but my favorite is Gorgeous.
An album to listen over and over!
