A Nice Mix

"This is a nice mix of stuff Burton did a few decades ago. It's two LPs on one CD - Keith Jarrett is on only one of the LPs, so he's on just half the CD. Some of the part with Jarrett is about as close to jazz/rock fusion as I have heard either of them play, but it's not cliche, it's good stuff, bright, fine melodies, creative rhythm changes - it still sounds fresh, hearing it again after all these years. Then there's some more tranquil tracks, it's not all of one rhythm. Moonchild, and In Your Quiet Place, etc., memorable, fine tunes. The other half of the CD is the LP Throb, very different from the part with Jarrett, more moody in parts - the rhythm of the title cut does just what it says, throbbing with yearning - but the LP is also in parts light and whimsical, like bassist Swallow's composition - what's it called, Doing the Chicken? A good double album CD, a nice mix of two very different vintage Burton LPs."
Two Burton Albums, Keith Jarrett on one, Jerry Hahnon 2.

"Throb was my introduction to jazz back in '69 or '70. I have
listened to it all of these years on LP then CD, and it never
lost its charm. Steve Swallow was just as nutty then as he is now, "Chickens"
is my favorite cut. The play between electric
violinist Richard Greene and guitarist Jerry Hahn is a thing of
beauty. Hahn is still a player who can put just the right note
in just the right place (like that other countrified genius of
jazz Bill Frisell), he can fuzz and wah-wah then tinkle the
strings just right to make his musical point. One interesting
thing is the organ playing by Burton on Throb, besides his vibes.
The Jarrett-Burton album also has Hahn and Swallow, and drummer
Bill Goodwin --It is very much an album that shows all the new
ideas sprouting in music. Fortunately, the ideas of that time
did not die out, but have continued to grow, making room for all
sorts of fusions in Jazz, many of which have been remarkable to
experience. These two-LPs-in-one is like having a Superstar
album before they became superstars. As I said before, I
still play this CD after almost 35 years, and I still get a kick
out of it, and still find things that amaze me."
Two in One

"Two of the Vibraphonist Gary Burton's albums reissued on 1 single CD.
On the first album, Burton teams up with pianist Keith Jarrett and guitarist Sam Brown delivering a fantastic Jazz recording.
The second album Burton plays with Steve swallow and guitarist Jerry Hahn.
In these two recordings, Burton was in his most exploring period, delivering music, that although dates from 1969 and 1970, still sounds very tight and fresh today.
