Common Ground

Common Ground by The New Gary Burton Quartet
Released: Jun 2011
Label: Mack Avenue Records
Gary Burton's reformed quartet (featuring drummer Antonio Sanchez, guitarist Julian Lage and bassist Scott Colley) is the statesman vibraphonist's first working band in six years, and showcases his restraint as an older, wiser bandleader at the peak of his powers. For as confident as Burton's playing is, what shines through is his ability to step back -- both on solos and as a songwriter -- to show off the considerable talents of his colleagues. Lage's "Etude" and Sanchez's "Common Ground" are among the record's most athletic tunes.
