A popular phrase in years past was “Life Begins at 60,” but Gary Burton—as he has done so often throughout his career—is rewriting the book on retirement. Having turned 70 in January, an age when most artists begin to solely look back, Burton forges ahead with his new Mack Avenue Records album, Guided Tour, which solidifies the ...

See where Gary Burton's later albums were coming from and understand how a fusion of jazz and country music can work.

An eclectic effort, with uncertain results 14 Jun. 2004
By hillbilly willie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hank Garland's vibe player returns to Tennessee in a collaborative effort with some of Nashville's premier session players. Although his concept was laudatory, IMO only half of the rather short (37 min.) album hits his intended mark. His weakest tracks are the eponymous track "Tennessee Firebird", and "Beauty Contest"-both are jam sessions between his jazz group, and the country folks as foils. On the other hand, Hank Williams' "Alone and Forsaken" and Ferlin Husky's "Gone" are the strongest tunes on here. They come out both complex and wistful.
In reading the liner notes, Gary comes off as appreciative of the country musicians, yet seems somewhat contemptuous of their abilities. And that seems to show in his underuse of Buddy Emmons in an attempt to make an album that is neither fish nor fowl. The best tracks are brilliant, and with the mediocre ones together make this a decent album.
