Album Reviews:

Vibraphonist Gary Burton's classic quartet of the late `60s, consisting of Burton and guitarist Larry Coryell (later, Pat Metheny), bassist Steve Swallow, and drummer Roy Haynes, are often credited with laying the groundwork for the aggressive jazz-rock fusions of the `70s. Nearly four decades on from their, initial, pioneering efforts, original quartet members and jazz legends Burton, Metheny, and Swallow, along with newcomer drummer Antonio Sanchez, have assembled for QUARTET LIVE!, an 11-song live document recorded at Yoshi's Jazz Club in Oakland, California. Revisiting Burton (and Metheny) penned originals as well as material by Duke Ellington and Chick Corea, the group reaches new virtuosic heights, offering a fresh, modern slant on the fusion genre.
