Guided Tour by Gary Burton
Released: Aug 2013
Label: Mack Avenue Records
The second album from vibes master Gary Burton's "new" quartet (with drummer Antonio Sanchez, guitarist Julian Lage and bassist Scott Colley) builds on the success of the initial outing. Once again, Lage's compositions seem to get this group doing their best work -- the interplay between Burton and the composer-guitarist on "The Lookout," "Sunday's Uncle" and "Helena" is a highlight. But the whole band is great (Sanchez penned the fine opening tune, "Caminos"). The cover of Fred Hersch's "Jackalope" is another burner. And the band also digs into subtlety with skill, on Colley's "Legacy."
