By Stuart Jefferson TOP 100 REVIEWER on September 24, 2012
Format: Audio CD
I'm surprised that no one has reviewed this two album set of some of Burton's best early work. Maybe it's because fans already own these two albums and know how good they are. Hopefully this isn't one of those releases that seems to fall between the cracks. The tracks range from 3 to 4 "stars", so judge for yourself. "Lofty Fake Anagram" (LFA), was one of the very first "real" jazz LPs I ever bought. It looked intriguing so I thought I might take a chance. Was I glad I did. Up until then I'd only heard Milt Jackson play the vibes, so my ears were opened considerably when I heard this album. This album (and it's companion in this set) is from Burton's early years. He had recorded a couple of albums, with different personnel, including the album "Duster", which has some fine playing on it. What's truly needed is a box set that encompasses all of Burton's work form his earliest (RCA/Atlantic) days, up to his ECM recordings. That label has released a very fine (but not all encompassing) box set of Burton's work for the label.

"LFA" is (arguably) Burton's best early studio album. The playing is simply immaculate on all counts. Burton's vibes have that pinpoint sound, yet there's a relaxed warmth to his sound, even when playing up tempo. Bob Moses' drums and cymbal work complement Burton (and the rest of the group) perfectly. Steve Swallow was one of the best double bass players in jazz-he's now one of the better electric bass players and a composer of some note. And there's Larry Coryell. His playing is a perfect match for Burton's, and his solos are always well thought out and intuitive. Together their music was close to what was then just becoming jazz/rock-without the volume and pyrotechnics that came to define that style later.

This double set of vintage Gary Burton recordings is a must-have for every Burton completest. Good quality remastering and all liner notes intact.
