Gary BurtonGary Burton Quartet (Duster/Lofty Fake Anagram/Gary Burton Quartet In Concert) ... LP
RCA (France), 1967/1968. Near Mint- 3LPs ... $29.99
A pretty great 3LP set that documents one of Gary Burton's greatest groups – the quartet he formed with Larry Coryell on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums. The group recorded these 3 albums for RCA in 1967 and 1968 – and really pushed Gary's style past the straight jazz approach of earlier albums, into the open-ended style that made him one of the freer vibists of the 70s. Haynes is especially great, as his free touch on the drum kit is perfect for Burton's modal wanderings on the vibes. Titles include "One Two 1234", "Response", "Ballet", "Sweet Rain", "General Mojo Cuts Up", I'm Your Pal", "Lines", "Blue Comedy", "Walter L", and "Wrong Is Right". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes book. Box has some very light wear, but is great overall.)

✨✧ Gary BurtonNew Quartet ... LP
ECM, 1973. Sealed ... $24.99
A fantastic 70s album from Gary Burton – a set that definitely has the "new" promised in the title, as it takes off more from some of Gary's work in previous years! The record's got this explosive sense of color that really comes through in Gary's vibes – and in the way the group can leaop into the fray when needed – almost funky at points, but also able to shift into more sensitive modes too – balanced between the guitar of Michael Goodrick,bass of Abraham Laboriel, and drums of Harry Blazer. Burton's got a bit more bite at times than before – pushing even past his Atlantic Records sound and the tunes are a well-chosen array of songs by contemporaries who include Keith Jarrett, Mike Gibbs, Chick Corea, and Carla Bley. Titles include "Open Your Eyes You Can Fly", "Coral", "Tying Up Loose Ends", "Olhos De Gato", and "Mallet Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original US pressing – on ECM/Polydor. Still sealed – cover has one small mark and shrink is open slightly in one corner.)

Gary BurtonRing ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1974. Used ... $14.99
One of Gary Burton's more free-flowing albums of the 70s – a bit more fusion than some of his other work of the time, with key guitar contributions from Mick Goodrick and a young Pat Metheney! The album's still filled with plenty of Burton's great work on vibes, but the guitars also soar out strongly too – bringing in a sense of pulse that's matched by the basses of Steve Swallow and Eberhard Weber, and percussion by Bob Moses. The groove's still a bit softer-edged than traditional fusion sides of the time – thanks to a mellower ECM approach – but there's also a bit more dynamic energy on some of the tracks than you might be used to hearing from the label. Titles include "Silent Spring", "The Colours Of Chloe", "Intrude", "Unfinished Symphony", "Tunnel Of Love", and "Mevlevia". CD

✨✧ Gary BurtonTennessee Firebird ... LP
RCA, 1966. Near Mint- ... $34.99
Quite an unusual session from Gary Burton – recorded in Nashville, with a mix of jazz and country session players – coming together in an open-ended sound that's got lots of complicated touches. Gary's jazz side is represented by Roy Haynes on drums, Steve Swallow on bass, and Steve Marcus on sax – and the Nashville side of things is handled by players that include Buddy Emmons, Ray Edenton, Charlie McCoy, and Chet Atkins, who duets with Burton on two spare tracks. The sound is hard to describe, but quite different from, and equally striking as, Burton's 60s albums for RCA. Titles include "Epilogue", "Alone & Forsaken", "Walter L", "I Want You", "Just Like A Woman", "Gone", "Tennessee Firebird", "Beauty Contest", and "Born To Lose". LP, Vinyl record album

Gary BurtonTurn Of The Century ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 18.98
Very hip material from vibesman Gary Burton – tunes recorded for Atlantic Records in the late 60s and early 70s, a label that allowed Burton a great chance to experiment in a range of different styles! Some tunes are very groovy, even a little bit funky – while others show more of the chromatic approach that Burton would develop even more strongly in later years, still played here with a nice sense of swing amidst the modern tones. Other players include Richard Tee on organ and piano, Steve Swallow on bass, Jerry Hahn and Eric Gale on guitars, Keith Jarrett on piano and electric piano, and Stephane Grappelli on violin – and in addition to vibes, Burton also plays piano, electric piano, and organ. Titles include "Vibrafinger", "Moonchild/In Your Quiet Place", "Coquette", "Throb", "Turn Of The Century", "Henninger Flats", "Hand Bags & Glad Rags", "Las Vegas Tango", "Some Echoes", "Daphne", "Fortune Smiles", and "Chega De Saudade".

ECM, 1974. Used ... $9.99
Two of the greatest things going for ECM in the 70s – brought together on one record! The vibes of Gary Burton are a wonderful match for the careful guitar work of Ralph Towner – particularly his 12-string guitar, which is used in a space that's somewhere between folk and jazz, and which seems to evoke Gary Burton's Tennessee roots in a really poetic way! The style isn't entirely jazz, although that term is the best description for it – and instead, both players find this really magical space together – creating special sounds that resonate with sensitivity and a unique sort of soul. Titles include "Drifting Petals", "Icarus", "Brotherhood", "Song For A Friend", and "Goodbye Pork Pie Hate". CD

✨✧ Gary BurtonGood Vibes ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Gary Burton hits a sweet electric funky sound here – a great groove that really makes the album stand out from most of his other work! The support Burton gets is a big reason for the greatness of the date – as he's working in a group that includes Eric Gale on guitar, Richard Tee on piano and organ, Chuck Rainey on bass, and Bernard Purdie on drums. The album's got a bit of trippiness to it – kind of in the style of some of Herbie Mann's funky production work for the Vortex label – and a few cuts have producer Joel Dorn working with Arif Mardin on the cuts, giving them a more expansive sound that pushes Burton's playing nicely. The vibes have a dark chromatic quality to them that sounds great next to the sweeter playing of the funky player – and the record's filled with nice numbers like "Vibrafinger", "Las Vegas Tango", "Boston Marathon", and "Leroy The Magician".

✨✧ Gary BurtonThrob ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A very groovy record from vibes legend Gary Burton – a set that was done for Atlantic Records right after Gary's big rise to genius on RCA – but with a feel that's even wilder than those wonderful records! There's a bit of the Vortex Records approach going on here – some slight psychedelic elements that come not just from Gary's vibes, but from the excellent guitar work from Jerry Hahn – who can play jazz, but with some of the trippiness of a rock musician – yet in a way that's still very laidback, and pre-fusion overall. The group also features Steve Swallow on bass, Bill Goodwin on drums, and a bit of violin from Richard Greene – and the blend of electric and acoustic strings with the vibes is mighty nice – with a sound that's sharper and more pointed than Burton's ECM music to come. Titles include "Turn Of The Century", "Chickens", "Some Echoes", "Throb", "Doin the Pig", and "Henniger Flats". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chick Corea & Gary BurtonIn Concert, Zurich – October 28 1979 ... CD
ECM (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the best ECM teams of the 70s – working here together in a wonderful live set! Chick Corea's got this wonderful flow on his piano – almost a quality that's more like the most unbridled Keith Jarrett work for ECM – bursting out with light and color at each new turn, but in a way that makes it feel like Chick's just discovering each sound as it comes to his fingertips! This quality really seems to bring out a freshness in Burton's vibes, too – an ebullience that's even stronger than usual – and not as concerned with deeper-down sounds as some of his other ECM recordings. The whole thing's great – with lots of original tunes by Chick – and titles include "Song To Gayle", "Mirror Mirror", "Crystal Silence", "Bud Powell", and "Senor Mouse". CD

Larry BunkerLarry Bunker Quartette Featuring Gary Burton – Unissued Session Vol 1 ... LP
Vault/Interplay (Japan), 1963. Near Mint- ... $29.99
One of the only albums recorded as a leader by drummer Larry Bunker – a wonderful percussionist who was a key part of the LA 60s scene on so many levels! This set has Larry working live with a quartet – Mike Wofford on piano, Bob West on bass, and Gary Burton on vibes – easily running through numbers that have a gentle glide, and a warmly chromatic finish. There's a really nice organic quality to the numbers – kind of bubbling forth with an easy-going approach that we really like, while still having a bit of an edge and urgency. This Japanese-only album features unissued material from the original 60s sessions – with titles that include "Sweet Rain", "Tune Up", "Stella By Starlight", "Be My Love", "I Love You", and "Panther Pause". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, with obi!)

Valley Of Search, 2021. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Patricia Brennan is a vibist with experience in some farther reaches of avant expression – but here, she stakes her voice in a very beautiful way – with sounds that build slowly, take gentle shapes, and use both vibes and marimba at a level that has the songs opening up like patient musical flowers, awaiting the sun of the Patricia's inspiration! There's some of the spaciousness you might hear with 70s Gary Burton on ECM – but Brennan's music is even more open and thoughtful – never forcing the moment too much, and clearly working with a strong knowledge of her instruments, but not in a way that has to do anything to prove itself. Titles include "I Like For You To Be Still", "Blame It", "Sonnet", "Episodes", "Magic Square", "Away From Us", "Derrumbe De Turquesas", and three "Improvisation" tracks. CD

Stan Getz & Astrud GilbertoGetz Au Go Go ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A beautiful dreamy album that's quite different from the classic Getz/Gilberto collaboration – but which also shares much of that set's lyrical beauty! This album was recorded live, in 1964, when Stan Getz was playing with his quartet that included Gary Burton on vibes – an incredible lineup that made for some wonderfully moody sounds! The vibes/tenor approach was a high point in Getz's career – especially as the young Burton could create these beautiful washes of sound that were a perfect counterpoint to Getz's breathy playing. And although Astrud Gilberto is thrown into the mix here to give the album a bit of bossa appeal – vocals on 6 titles that include "Corovado", "Eu E Voce", "It Might As Well Be Spring", "One Note Samba", "Only Trust Your Heart", and "The Telephone Song" – there's also 4 more tracks that are all instrumental, and which show the Getz/Burton union in all of its glory! These tracks include "6 Nix Pix Flix", "The Singing Song", "Here's That Rainy Day", and "Summertime". And for reference, the rest of the group includes Gene Cherico on bass and Joe Hunt on drums – but on 3 tracks, Chuck Israels plays bass instead of Cherico, and on a few others, Helcio Milito plays drums instead of Hunt, and Kenny Burrell joins in on guitar. LP, Vinyl record album

Tim HardinTim Hardin 1 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
The fantastic first Verve album from Tim Hardin – a record that's almost a genre unto itself, given the very unique approach that Tim brings to his music! The set might be one of the first times that the world of folk was able to reach out and really find a home in so many other styles too – as there's a blend of jazz-inflected instrumentation and vocals that helped lift Hardin and these songs way past the pop folk moment of the mid 60s – so much so, there's arguably an influence here that just keeps going on over the decades! Gary Burton provides some great vibes, John Sebastian blows a bit of harmonica, and Artie Butler creates these gentle arrangements that are perfect – still making you feel like you're meeting Tim Hardin on his own, but with secret subtle support. Nearly every song's a classic – and titles include "Don't Make Promises", "It'll Never Happen Again", "Reason To Believe", "How Can We Hang On To A Dream", and "Misty Roses". CD features five bonus tracks! CD

Flute, strings, and soul – a wonderful counterpart to some of Hubert Laws' funkier albums of the time – and a record cut with some tremendous backings! The core group features Hubert on assorted flutes, Gary Burton on vibes, Chick Corea on piano, and Bernard Purdie on drums – all augmented by larger string backings arranged and conducted by John Murtaugh, with a dark-tinged style that's a bit in the mode of some of the work at the time by William S Fischer, but with a sound that's even moodier and more introspective. Laws' work on flute is a brilliant example of understatement – lots of space between the notes, and a rich exploration of sound that's completely mindboggling!

A wonderful setting for the guitar of John Scofield – one that really brings out all the rich chromes of his early work on the instrument! The group's a trio – with Adam Nussbaum on drums and Steve Swallow on bass – and in a way, there's a vibe here that reminds us of some of the interaction between Swallow and guitarist Larry Coryell on the 60s RCA albums by Gary Burton – this fresh sense of color and interplay, as Scofield uses his instrument at a level that's tuneful, but also in a painterly way. Titles include "Yawn", "Dr Jackle", "Why'd You Do It", "Shinola", and "Jean The Bean". CD

The songs of Chick Corea were a hit with the rest of the jazz world, right from the start – subject to so many great reinterpretations, as is definitely the case here – as the SF Jazz Collective mix Chick's music with some great originals of their own! There's a soaring spirit to the performance that really lives up to the best Corea style of the early 70s – that generation when the keyboardist taught us all how to fly – thanks to tunes played here that include "Matrix", "Spain", "Rumble/City Gate", "Space Circus", "La Fiesta", and "500 Miles". The group also uses the vibes of Stefon Harris to evoke some of the Corea/Gary Burton collaborations – and the rest of the lineup includes Miguel Zenon on alto, David Sanchez on tenor, Avishai Cohen on trumpet, Robin Eubanks on trombone, Edward Simon on piano, Obed Calvaire on drums, and Matt Penman on bass. Nearly every member of the group contributed an original to the set, and titles include "Gibraltar", "Let's Take A Trip To The Sky", "Home Is", "Grand Opening", and "Incessant Desires". CD

Moserobie (Sweden), 2019. New Copy ... $18.99
Incredible work from one of the hippest vibists working on the planet today – the great Mattias Stahl, one of the few players to really bring something new to the instrument over the past few decades! Stahls has this very rich sound, but also a very unique sense of timing too – which means that he can ring out with notes that are very seductive, while also pulling you into a space that's very much his own – fresh rhythms, different progressions, and moments of mindblowing intensity – all given fantastic support here by bassist Joe Williamson and drummer Christopher Cantillo! The group are as revolutionary as any of the Bobby Hutcherson "new thing" recordings of the 60s, or as Gary Burton's key combos at their best – and there's a sense of new imagination that matches that of the contemporary, but very different, vibist Jason Adasiewicz – maybe the only other player besides Stahl who's done so much with the instrument in recent years. Titles include "Vi Gar Till Skolan", "Morgon Pa Torpet", "Elmers", "Diagram", "Lennart Jernestrand", "Ordning Pa Torpet", and a surprising take on John Lennon's "Jealous Guy". CD

Incredible jazz from the German scene of the 70s – two years' of recordings from this important festival – one that presents all the "new jazz" promised in its name, but in a range that moves effortlessly between free jazz, modal moments, funky fusion, and even some groovy big band work too! Performers are a range from all over the European scene – and are represented here in a significant selection of material from each act – very well-recorded, and presented in this beautiful box set, along with a booklet of notes and photos as well. The scope of sounds is fantastic – and long performances include an set of improvisations from the trio of Peter Brotzmann, Fred Van Hove, and Han Bennink; two long electric tracks from Jasper Van't Hof's Pork Pie group, with Charlie Mariano on a range of reeds and Philip Catherine on guitar; four long improvisations from the SOS group of John Surman, Mike Osborne, and Alan Skidmore – plying in a great mix of reeds and electronics; there's also two long improvisations between pianist Misha Mengelberg and drummer Han Bennink; Gary Burton's quintet with Pat Metheny and Mick Goodrick on guitars perform three improvisations for over 75 minutes of music; the Gustav Brom Big Band step out on some very groovy tracks; saxophonist Eero Koivistonen blows with his quartet that includes Olli Avhenlahti on electric piano; reedman Jiri Stivin and guitarist Rudolph Dasek play a number of improvisations; bassist Barre Phillips and flautist Kryzstof Zgraja perform two long improvisations; the Polish Jazz Summit features Tomasz Stanko on trumpet, Zbigniew Namyslowski on alto, Zbigniew Siefert on violin, and Adam Makowicz on Fender Rhodes; and trumpeter Franz Kogelmann and soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy head a quintet with a bit of electronics! There's a few more surprises, too – and the whole thing is a fantastic presentation of these lost sounds. CD

A killer record from the late 50s – and one that hints at all the sides Stan would take in later years: his bossa sides, his vibes quartet with Gary Burton, and the playful lyricism of his recordings with Chick Corea. The set was recorded in San Francisco, when Stan had that great bassist Scott LaFaro in his group, and when he was brought into the studio by Fantasy to meet with local talents like Cal Tjader, Eddie Duran, and Vince Guaraldi. Billy Higgins is also added on drums, giving the set a lively songlike sound that's just great.

✨✧ Stan Getz & Joao GilbertoGetz/Gilberto #2 ... LP
Verve, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A very different record than the first collaboration between Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto – but that's also one of the things that makes it great! The album's more of a split LP than a shared one – as side one features a live performance from the great mid 60s Stan Getz quartet that featured Gary Burton on vibes – a wonderfully cool combo that was very under-documented on record, and which makes a key appearance here. The combination of Burton's vibes and Stan's tenor is pure genius – a sound that's got all the subtle hues and cool colors of the Getz bossa recordings, but which is quite different overall. Stan's tone is amazing on these tunes – and titles include "Here's That Rainy Day", "Tonight I Shall Sleep With A Smile On My Face", "Grandfather's Waltz", and "Stan's Blues". Side two features Joao Gilberto without Stan – playing in a very groovy trio that's more straight bossa than most of his other US recordings – cool small combo grooving that's totally great! The lineup features Gilberto on guitar and vocals, Keeter Betts on bass, and Helcio Milito on drums – all working in a sweetly grooving mode on titles that include "Samba De Minha Terra", "Meditation", "Bim Bom", "Rosa Moreno", and "O Pato". LP, Vinyl record album
