By J. Lovins HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on March 12, 2002
Format: Audio CD
Two genres appease my appetite for today's music CLASSICAL and JAZZ...so it's no
wonder this latest Concord release hits the spot to satisfy my craving...featuring Gary
Burton(vibes) and Makoto Ozone(piano), performing the works of Barber, Bonilla, Brahms,
Cardoso, Confrey, Delibes, Gershwin, Rachmaninoff, Scarlatti and even Ozone composed
his "SOMETHING BORROWED, SOMETHING BLUE", mesmerizing with haunting
overtones, a perfect ending to this classic event.
Each piece mirrors the harmonies of both classical and jazz, through the musicianship of each
artists...much care has been taken to present various tempo and moods...from Latin,
Brazilian, Swing, Tango leaning toward polished styles that will amaze and enlightened the
listener...each selection has tremendous improvisation, with some Blues thrown in for good
measure(now we're cooking).
A big thank you to Concord Jazz, Gary Burton(producer), Glen Barros and John
Burk(executive producers)...a wonderful and exciting album for all jazz and classical fans
alike...just listen and study this one-of-a-kind project...hope to see more in the future...this is
a totally satisfying CD, a must have for anyone who plays an instrument or just enjoys GOOD
MUSIC!
Total Time: 69:45 on 11 Tracks ~ Concord Jazz 2105 ~ (2002)

This Burton-Ozone collaboration has produced a record that deserves to be timeless. It is a marvelous blend of the classical and jazz traditions. The spirit of the classical composers represented on the disc comes through in a refreshing way, brilliantly interpreted by these two superb musicians. This will be my favorite record from the year 2002, no question about it.

Burton and Ozone perform a splendidly diverse variety of classics alongside some newer tunes considered classics in their own right. Tombeau de Couperin, Rachmaninoff's Prelude, Scarlatti's Sonata, and the Lakmé Medley do not merely use a melody and chord changes as inspiration for a "head chart," but rather delve inside the original songs for a new twist. The Sonata particularly shows off the duo's ingenuity in finding a new interpretation that respects the old melody.

The newer pieces (such as Milonga, the Confrey Impromptu and the Gershwin pieces) do not belittle themselves as "lesser classics," but Ozone and Burton respect them as equals to the other pieces. The final piece, though not destined to be a classic of its own, is a pensive reflection on the "classics" which echoes the voice the duo found inside many of the other pieces. Overall, a charmingly novel album perfect for lovers of jazz and classical music alike.

After receiving a grand ovation with his landmark tribute albums he paid to Astor
Piazolla (Libertango—The Music Of Astor Piazolla) in 2000 and four legendary jazz
vibraphonists who set the solid standards for the way the vibraphone is played (For
Hamp, Red, Bags And Cal) in 2001, Gary Burton surprised some when he released
this evocative duet classical CD. Released in 2002, Virtuosi finds Burton and noted
jazz pianist Makoto Ozone paying their special tribute to a few classical masters on
this mystical evocative project as they perform a set of beautifully-crafted standard
classics, as Burton’s vibes and Ozone’s piano are gracefully paired to the essential
elegance of the two jazz masters’ artistic charm. Beginning on Maurice Raval’s Le
Tombeau, the track set proceed well on other timeless pieces, like Samuel Barber’s
Excursions I, Opus 20; Rachmaninoff’s Prelude VIII, Opus 32; George Gershwin’s
Prelude II, Jorge Cardoso’s Milonga; Brahms’ Capriccio II, Opus 76; and Scarlatti’s
Sonata 20 until reaching it’s zenith with the Lakme Medley and ending on a superb
note with Ozone’s Something Borrowed, Something Blue, a fitting tribute he made
for this project—his perfect piece to conclude the program. As one of the greatest
and most beloved classical albums to pay tribute to the great masters, Burton and
Ozone had great fun discovering these timeless masterpieces which also includes
their reindition of Impromptu--from The Three Oddities, composed by Zez Confrey
(whose iconic classic works includes Kitten On The Keys and Dizzy Fingers), and
a delightful take on Leo Delibes’ Lamke, where the results from the classically hip
tracks are expanded in scope so you can comprehend the music that is gradually
showcased on this award-winning project.
