Product Description

Quartet Live! is a revisited edition of the classic Gary Burton Quartet. The album features three original members and jazz legends Burton, Pat Metheny and Steve Swallow along with one new member, and perhaps one of the most prominent drummers of his generation, Antonio Sanchez. The eleven song album was recorded live at Yoshi’s Jazz Club in Oakland.

The story begins in 1967 when bassist Steve Swallow joined with vibraphonist Gary Burton to form the original Gary Burton Quartet. In the early 1970s, then 19 year old guitarist Pat Metheny joined Burton’s band and one of the most celebrated careers in music began. This would be the start of a 35 year musical friendship between the vibist and guitarist that continues today. A decade ago Metheny discovered drummer Antonio Sanchez, inviting him to join The Pat Metheny Group, and the two have been playing together ever since. Metheny came up with the idea to revisit the Gary Burton Quartet, the band that had been his entry into the jazz world: "For me, as a teenager in Missouri just starting to appreciate jazz, Gary’s group was the most innovative band around". They decided to schedule a gig at the Montreal Jazz Festival in 2005. The musicians’ rapport and the freshness of playing at Montreal was so energizing that the musicians took the act on the road in Japan and the US in 2006 and 2007, and the group reunited again for a European tour in 2008. What we have here is four legendary musicians, improvisers and composers all, each at the top of his game, bringing modern jazz history to life on Quartet Live!.

A Kid's Review on 5 July 2009
Format: Audio CD
Great album, all four musicians are on fine form, and as with the Metheny album Day Trip last year, it is a joy to listen to Antonio Sanchez, you don't have to be a drummer to appreciate his wonderful playing.
Olhos de Gato and Question and Answer are highlights, check out the live clips on youtube before buying if you are in any doubt, cracking stuff and great interpplay and sympathy between 4 musicians from 3 generations.

Had the pleasure of seeing these excellent musicians in London in 2008 and thoroughly enjoyed the show. Had to get this live album as it recreates that night for me. Wonderful memories of a night when I saw two of my heroes on stage together playing sublimely.

Having seen this band on the tour I could not wait for the album. It has fabulous tunes, superb musicianship and you can really hear these guys just having fun playing fantastic jazz. Its hard to believe that they had not been together for some 30 years. Recorded live in a small club, fortunately audience noise is at a minimum and the recording quality is first rate. This should be in everyone's record collection.
