Product Description:

Solo performer: Gary Burton (piano, electric piano, organ, vibraphone).
Recorded at Atlantic Recording Studios, New York, New York and live at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Montreux, Switzerland. Originally released on Atlantic (1598).
Because Gary Burton uses four mallets simultaneously, he has long been able to sound like two or three players at once. This remarkable solo set has three selections in which Burton overdubs vibes with piano, electric piano, and organ, but those are far overshadowed by three unaccompanied vibes showcased from the 1971 Montreux Jazz Festival and a slightly later (and very memorable) studio rendition of "Chega de Saudade (No More Blues)." The latter is one of the high points of Gary Burton's career. Wondrous music. ~ Scott Yanow
