Having Just seen this quartet in London (minus the piano) , the band performs so beautifully, compositions that are close to immediate, Burton is simply wonderful.

HASH(0x8f1d7a5c) out of 5 stars A future classic! 25 May 2004
By Dr.D.Treharne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a future classic album. It's already amongst my top 10 jazz albums of 2004, and even after protracted listening it gives up new nuances at every further play. This is an album where the sum of the group is greater than the individual parts, and where the individual parts are themselves luminary. It's unfair to describe Makoto Ozone (Piano), James Genus (Bass) and Clarence Penn (drums) as a rhythm section because each give support and encouragement to all the other players. Ozone, in particular as well as contributing two tracks (7 and the amazing track 10) weaves and insinuates his playing throughout the whole performance. Lage, as has been mentioned in another review is a precocious talent- he wrote tracks 1.2 and 8, and effortlessly produces deft and telling contributions with his guitar playing, with a mature and confident performance.Add to this the sublime playing of Gary Burton, possibly at the height of his performing powers, and you have a superlative album of carefully selected pieces that melt together. The overall mood is considered and laid back, but never dull or self satisfied. Favourite tracks are already too numerous to mention in the detail they deserve.The ensemble playing on "Ladies in Mercedes" by Steve Swallow is terrific as it is on Osscar Petersons "Wheatland". Ozones "Heroes sin nombre" is as indicated above 'amazing', and even the relatively up tempo version of Carla Bley's "Syndrome" is effortless. However, if push comes to shove it's "First impression" that sets the tone and style for this amazing and refreshing album. Hyperbole? Possibly, but it's a long time since this listener sat down with a new album and played it straight off three times in a row; an entrancing treat that you should not miss out on - and of course it's ideal music for those laid back sunny evenings. Recommended unconditionally, order it now!

HASH(0x95694414) out of 5 stars Fresh jazz guitar 25 Dec. 2004
By twangmon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Vibraphonist Gary Burton has a knack for discovering and nurturing fresh voices in jazz guitar. Such heavyweights as Larry Coryell, the late Sam Brown, Jerry Hahn, Mick Goodrick, Pat Metheny, John Scofield, and Bill Frisell got their first major exposure in one of Burton's bands. His latest find is Julian Lage, a 16-year-old guitarist whose phrasing, tone, and sense of melodic adventure put him on par with today's best jazzbos. With a stunning mix of heart and chops, Lage roams the fretboard of his Manzer archtop, hunting down beautiful, singing melodies that seem to float off his strings. Occasionally, he'll cut lose with a flurry of notes or a long, spiraling run that reveals his stupendous flatpicking technique, but his primary focus is on threading daring lines through the tricky changes. Lage's three originals display a deep harmonic sophistication, and his touch and dynamics evoke his musical hero, Jim Hall.

HASH(0x8f9ac074) out of 5 stars Feelgood story but little to listen to. 26 Jan. 2006
By Steven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm a huge GB fan and he can do virtually no wrong by me. Anyone who is familiar with his career knows of his longstanding place in higher music education and his keen sense for discovering new talent. So I won't expound on that.

But to be perfectly honest, if you were to do a blind "taste test" of this album - not knowing that it was Burton playing vibes, Ozone playing keys, and a teenager not old enough to drive playing guitar - you would probably come away with little reason to listen again. There are a few notable compositions by the likes of Metheny, Mitch Foreman, and Oscar Peterson, but the arrangements are somewhat uninspired, at least by the GB standards I'm used to. Lage, the young guitar prodigy, contributes three originals and although any composition by someone so young worthy of being recited by GB is remarkable, they leave me wondering how young Pat Metheny was when he wrote Unity Village or Bright Size Life.

I know it's not fair to compare young Lage to an iconic Metheny, but for me music is all about enjoying what I'm listening to, not feelgood sub-plots or story lines. I must admit that it is somewhat fascinating to listen to a young teenager play an otherwise excellent jazz guitar along side GB, but take away that knowledge and the music left to stand by itself becomes somewhat underwhelming.

This CD is worth owning purely for the posterity value of what one day may become the next Jim Hall, but if you just want to hear great jazz music by GB, the honest truth is you'd be more satisfied with something like Face To Face or Like Minds, etc.

This CD still gets a positive rating of 3 stars because GB can do no wrong. I just won't be listening to it as much as I will his other releases.

HASH(0x8f1f1d44) out of 5 stars Man , can you believe how this teenage jazz guitarist tears it up ? 2 Aug. 2012
By Hammer + Jazz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Me either . I love Gary Burton . Makoto as well . Add in the killin' rhythm section of Mr. Genus and Mr. Penn and it's lights out baby . Because these cats can lay it all out or tear it all up . At will . I had the pleasure of hearing this record while makin' the rounds today . I had my whole jazz library with me on a HUGE capacity flash drive . Listening to other recordings by Gary (about six others) , it really stunned me how tight this crew is . Makoto's beautiful and , as needed , hard swingin' came as no surprise to me . I have one of his key , early recodings with John Abercrombie , Marc Johnson and Peter Erskine . I know Gary loves to collaborate with Mr. Ozone as often as possible . T'was Julian that blew me away . Oh , get this one my friend . Don't hesitate .

HASH(0x8f5fda2c) out of 5 stars This Is His Landmark Turning Point! 19 Feb. 2016
By RH - Published on Amazon.com
The great and thoroughly distinguished Gary Burton have been known to have a
keen eye for discovering new talent as he is lionized as a universally acclaimed jazz
vibraphonist known for his multi-talented creative and highly innovative solos that he
performs well on the vibes, but on this album he presents another generation of jazz
artists in his next band. Released in 2004, Generations presents us an exciting new
discovery in the prodigious artistry of aspiring young wunderkind guitarist- composer
Julian Lage, who was a sophomore in high school who’s musical maturity, virtuosity,
and creative merit has successfully developed in his youthful years, while other new
band members feature young session musicians Clarence Penn and James Genus,
on drums and bass, and Makoto Ozone even sits in at the piano. Headed by a solid
landscape of bold new original compositions and classic jazz standards, the opulent
track set begins on an uplifting note with the Lage-composed First Impressions as it
proceed with fresh new classic original hits, including Early, Test Of Time, The Title
Will Follow and Heroes Sin Nombre, as well as superb takes on jazz standards, like
Pat Metheny’s Take Another Look, Carla Bley’s Syndrome, Steve Swallow’s Ladies
In Mercedes and Oscar Peterson’s Wheatland, as Burton and the band serves up a
timeless listening experience. What made Generations such a stunning hit could be
proudly owed to the band camaraderie when Burton and Lage deliver an interacted,
yet accessible performances in a colourful spectrum of compositions- from inspired
to the far fetching- by both Lage and Ozone, along with Burton’s bandleading skills.
As well-showcased for it’s winning album cover featuring Burton and Lage jamming
in great harmony, Generations is a career-defining chapter in the vibraphonist’s rich
spectacular history that made this blockbuster hit a wonderful five star masterpiece,
which is something that he will also be immortalized for.
