GARY BURTON
GUIDED TOUR

A popular phrase in years past was “Life Begins at 60,” but Gary Burton—as he has done so often throughout his career—is rewriting the book on retirement. Having turned 70 in January, an age when most artists begin to solely look back, Burton forges ahead with his new Mack Avenue Records album, Guided Tour, which solidifies the ...

With the recent re-release of Burton's early live Carnegie Hall album ("Gary Burton Quartet In Concert"), this even earlier collection of Burton's music needs mentioning. This CD contains two of Burton's earliest albums. The first is "New Vibe Man In Town", recorded when Burton was 18 years old in 1961. This is his first album as a leader. The other set, "Jazz Winds From A New Direction", from 1960, was recorded when Burton was 17 years old, under Nashville guitarist Hank Garland's name. The tunes range anywhere from 3-4 "stars". It's especially nice (and telling) to play these two albums, and then listen to the 4 CD ECM box set "Gary Burton Chick Corea Crystal Silence", their duo recordings between the years 1972 and 1979. And even so many years later, you can still hear a bit of Burton's early style in his 70's playing.

Both albums find Burton already breaking free from the Milt Jackson/Lionel Hampton/Red Norvo approach to the vibes. Burton, even early on, was beginning to define his own style with the use of his four-mallet technique. This gave the vibes a fuller, more intricate sound-sometimes sounding like more than one player. Even at this stage, Burton had an innate sense of swing, combined with his own ever so slight country influence that is evident in many of his early albums.

"New Vibes..." contains some telling choices in compositions. Included are tunes by trumpeter Clifford Brown, arranger Arif Mardin, composer/arranger David Rose, pianist Marian McPartland, trumpeter Blue Mitchell, and a few others. Picking highlights is difficult-every song has something to recommend it. But "Joy Spring" and "Minor Blues" are simply terrific period jazz-well played and they swing. And listen to "So Many Things".

I was hoping trhis remaster could improve on the already stellar sonics of 'New Vibes Man'.. Unfortunately, it went the other way. My original CD of 'New Vibes Man' is much, much better sounding - warmer, fuller, and more alive. The bonus tracks with Hank Garland are interesting only if you're not familiar with the guitarist. But Gary Burton does not shine in that setting, and those tracks are really awful-sounding, barely listenable.
