5.0 out of 5 stars Two little classics on one CD.
This is a CD re-issue of two Gary Burton albums; "Gary Burton and Keith Jarrett" from 1971 and "Throb" from 1969. The disc has a running time of 1 hour 16 mins.

This is a CD re-issue of two Gary Burton albums; "Gary Burton and Keith Jarrett" from 1971 and "Throb" from 1969. The disc has a running time of 1 hour 16 mins.
The Burton/ Jarrett album is a quintet recording featuring vibes and guitar as the front line; Jarrett plays piano, electric piano and his soprano sax features on the track "Como En Vietnam" - an attractive composition by Steve Swallow - all the other tracks were written by Jarrett. Burton is always a pleasure to listen to - he and Jarrett make a good pairing, often weaving around each other in melodic lines; the music is thoughtful, intelligent jazz with a rock slant and a some free-jazz elements added for good measure - a rather beautiful little classic album.
"Throb" features another quintet, this time without piano and with a violin/guitar/vibes front line; most of the compositions are provided by Swallow and Mike Gibbs - "Turn of the Century" with its interesting tempo change - is a particularly attractive number. Burton had always had an interest in country music; the use of the violin here reflects that to a certain degree; there are folksy elements mixed up with funky elements, some languid, laid-back pieces like the title track, "Throb" and some sunny, foot tapping numbers - an easy-going treat of an album if you fancy being adventurous.
You can`t really lose here, this is something of a bargain if you enjoy good intelligent fusion music and both albums are rewarding listening. Check out the samples above or go to the MP3 download page for the samples there and see if it suits you.
