By J. Mcdonald TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 13 April 2011
Format: Audio 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.
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.

This is a 2 for 1 CD, The first 5 tracks are the 1971 album Gary Burton & Keith Jarrett, as you would expect this is excellent stuff, with four of the five numbers being Jarrett compositions, the other being by Steve Swallow. The remaining tracks are the Gary Burton album Throb (1969). Steve Swallow and Bill Goodwin play bass and drums on both albums with Sam Brown on guitar on the the album with Jarrett. On Throb Jerry Hahn is on guitar along with Richard Greene on violin. I guess it is Hahn's guitar sound that one of the reviewers (wrongly) refers to as "ugly". I don't hear it as ugly in the least, perhaps it it a little abrasive but that is just to do with the guitar effects available at the time, and I think it works just fine.

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)

This album is quite dated. Guitar sounds ugly. The jazz rock era was not a good one for jazz. All good musicians but.....

4.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Mix 16 Aug. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a nice mix of stuff Burton did a few decades ago. It's two LPs on one CD - Keith Jarrett is on only one of the LPs, so he's on just half the CD. Some of the part with Jarrett is about as close to jazz/rock fusion as I have heard either of them play, but it's not cliche, it's good stuff, bright, fine melodies, creative rhythm changes - it still sounds fresh, hearing it again after all these years. Then there's some more tranquil tracks, it's not all of one rhythm. Moonchild, and In Your Quiet Place, etc., memorable, fine tunes. The other half of the CD is the LP Throb, very different from the part with Jarrett, more moody in parts - the rhythm of the title cut does just what it says, throbbing with yearning - but the LP is also in parts light and whimsical, like bassist Swallow's composition - what's it called, Doing the Chicken? A good double album CD, a nice mix of two very different vintage Burton LPs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Encounter of Keith and Gary 31 Jan. 2001
By Kazuya Terakado - Published on
Format: Audio CD
It is very hard to describe the talents of Keith Jarrett and Gary Burton by one word since each of their play covers from traditional Jazz to folk rock or even classical music. However, as a big fan of both musicians (especially Keith), let me state that this is a great album. You will feel pleasure of listening of their musical collaboration. Listen to "Como En Vietnam". Each time I hear it, I cannot deny that I become excited about their play. Keith, Gary, and the bassist Steve Swallow inspired each other and made a real creation in this tune. If you like either Keith Jarrett or Gary Burton, I personally believe that you should not miss the chance to hear their great collaboration in this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two in One 9 Jan. 2007
By W. Noshie - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Two of the Vibraphonist Gary Burton's albums reissued on 1 single CD.

On the first album, Burton teams up with pianist Keith Jarrett and guitarist Sam Brown delivering a fantastic Jazz recording.

The second album Burton plays with Steve swallow and guitarist Jerry Hahn.

In these two recordings, Burton was in his most exploring period, delivering music, that although dates from 1969 and 1970, still sounds very tight and fresh today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Burton Albums, Keith Jarrett on one, Jerry Hahnon 2. 13 Sept. 2004
By "Catbird" - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Throb was my introduction to jazz back in '69 or '70. I have

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars for the first half 13 May 2003
By Lars - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This record was the one that got me started in the direction of jazz. When I first heard it it was like a revelation, and even if that was 27 years ago (1976) and I was only 15 then, it's still one of my favourites and a record I really wouldn't want to be without.
The record was out of print then, but fortunately Atlantic re-released it in their "That's jazz"-series.
The record is bristling with joy of playing and the whole thing sounds very fresh, including the writing (mostly by Jarrett). Burton and Jarrett interact nicely and soulfully and Sam Brown really smokes on the guitar, very singing lines of his.
There are some very serene moments in "Moonchild/In your quiet place" which is succeeded by "Como en Vietnam" (By Steve Swallow), which is probably the peak of the album, especially with Keiths soprano sax playing on the last vamping part, where he plays furiously, with complete abandon.
All in all: not a single boring moment on the record.
(This goes for the first part, originally released as "Gary Burton & Keith Jarrett", the second part, "Throb" by Burton, I have heard, but id didn't make a very big impression.)
