Don’t know this album. I’ll check it out.I had one private lesson with him. on vibes. in 1979. Nicest guy..
here's the album I liked (best)back then with pete erskine)
I'm gonna have to find these two CD's with Joe Morello AND Gary Burton! Two iconic players!
With Gary Burton
Morello and Burton also recorded Jazz Winds From A New Direction (Aug ‘60), It’s About Time (June ‘61) and Joe Morello Orchestra (Aug ‘62). Morello said that RCA wanted he and Burton to have a group together and that they would really get behind it and publicize it but Morello “was comfortable with Dave (Brubeck) so I wouldn’t do it. RCA couldn’t see putting all this promotion behind my solo albums if I was still going to be with Dave.”
I bet I'm older, I heard "Inna gadadavida"(sp?) when it was new (I'm not saying it was good, but it was one of the only rock solos, OLD). Have you heard "Crystal Since", a duet album with Gary Burton and Chick Corea? It's one of my favorites!I have been so diggin' on Gary Burton stuff lately. I've bought a couple CD's and have gotten nearly every CD our library system has. And I'm a heavy metal/progressive rock kinda guy.
Does anyone else like Gary?
I remember when that Iron Butterfly song first came out, and I tried to copy it.I bet I'm older, I heard "Inna gadadavida"(sp?) when it was new (I'm not saying it was good, but it was one of the only rock solos, OLD). Have you heard "Crystal Since", a duet album with Gary Burton and Chick Corea? It's one of my favorites!
Such a loss to the music world. I have a lot of Gary Burton recordings, but Crystal Silence, a duo record with Chick Corea, is my favourite.Here is why he retired:
Why are you retiring?
The simple answer is health reasons. I had six heart operations and I suffered some cognizant issues after the last one, which was a major one. I was without a heartbeat for half an hour and was revived. After I recovered, I noticed I didn’t have perfect pitch any more, which I had all my life. I also noticed that I had trouble sight-reading and everything that required intense concentration became a struggle. My playing reached a peak a few years ago and was now moving downward. I always said that I didn’t want to one day be a musician who could hardly play anymore … So, two years ago, I started the process of winding down. That’s now ending with this little tour.
