Burton's strong fusion roots
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Gary Burton provides here a fine example of his strong foundation in fusion. He is often overlooked as being a founder of fusion, but this album shows that he was one of the very first to experiment with rock/jazz music. The disc starts off with the intense, rollicking vibrafinger. Burton utilizes the rare electrovibes that were manufactured in small numbers about 35 years ago. The furious melodic and harmonic interplay between the brilliant Burton and the steadfast studio musicians is unparalelled in the field of vibraphone induced fusion. Burton goes on to cover "pain in my heart," the song that was popularized by Otis Redding, as well as "I never loved a man" by Aretha Franklin. Burton utilizes the entire sonic and dynamic range of the vibraphone which he helped design. His four mallet technique has yet to be surpassed. This cd is a fine example of Fusion and Gary Burton's mastery of the jazz vibraphone."
