Gary Burton & Hank Garland - New Vibe Man in Town & Jazz Winds from a New Direction

One of the preeminent vibraphonist's in jazz, this CD contains two complete LPs from the onset of Gary Burton’s career. The trio album New Vibe Man in Town marks Burton’s debut LP as a leader, while the quartet album Jazz Winds from a New Direction showcase the vibraphonist in collaboration with celebrated guitarist Hank Garland. Drummer Joe Morello is featured on both albums.


The facility Burton displays in this, his first album as leader, is startling. He is excellently supported by Cherico and Morello, whose four-, six-, and eight-bar brush exchanges with Burton are, as usual, brilliantly played and tastefully conceived. With the facility he has and the musical ability that shines through the deluge of notes, not to mention his fresh, happy approach, Burton stands as one of the bright lights on vibes.
Down Beat, Don DeMicheal

The correct title of track 13 is "Riot-chous" (combining the words "riot" and "righteous"). This mistake has been perpetuated for many years.
