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.
Yes this it Gary Burton before he took on board the ECM aesthetic but it is all wonderful stuff, ithese albums are of their time but dated? Never in the same way that Duke Ellington's Cotton Club era recordings are very much of their time.
noticed that these two albums had somehow failed to survive the transfer to my digital music player after a recent computer update. I have rather a lot of CDs and they are requiring significant rearrangement so Ispent an anxious morning locating the CD, now happily restored to my music files (and back up files)

Very quickly though I was struck by the sense that there is something clean and fresh about the album. There's an exuberance of people playing songs they like and having fun doing it. There are times when it borders on pop, and the rock-n-roll sensibilities are never far from the surface. However, the musicianship, harmony and improvisation are clearly the product of highly disciplined and talented jazz musicians.
You'll find it easy on the ear on your first listen, and after a few more you'll discover you can't get the quirky little melodies stuck out of your head. The songs have that pleasant characteristic of being both comfortable and unexpected. Put it on as background music and watch as your friends try to put their fingers on just what they're listening to.
I heartily recommend.
listened to it all of these years on LP then CD, and it never
lost its charm. Steve Swallow was just as nutty then as he is now, "Chickens"
is my favorite cut. The play between electric
violinist Richard Greene and guitarist Jerry Hahn is a thing of
beauty. Hahn is still a player who can put just the right note
in just the right place (like that other countrified genius of
jazz Bill Frisell), he can fuzz and wah-wah then tinkle the
strings just right to make his musical point. One interesting
thing is the organ playing by Burton on Throb, besides his vibes.
The Jarrett-Burton album also has Hahn and Swallow, and drummer
Bill Goodwin --It is very much an album that shows all the new
ideas sprouting in music. Fortunately, the ideas of that time
did not die out, but have continued to grow, making room for all
sorts of fusions in Jazz, many of which have been remarkable to
experience. These two-LPs-in-one is like having a Superstar
album before they became superstars. As I said before, I
still play this CD after almost 35 years, and I still get a kick
out of it, and still find things that amaze me.
