A real quality offering, and amongst the very best Jazz currently available. Great chemistry amongst the players who all shine in this environment.

This is an absoloute cracker of an album from Vibes legend Gary Burton. The second album from his "New Quartet" gets that valuable fifth star due to a higher energy level and some really terrific compositions.
No more needs to be said about Burton himself but I will give a quick mention to the excellent Julian Lage on guitar who has a pleasing, almost acoustic like sound, but still packs a little oomph when needed and then to Antonio Sanchez;surely now regarded as one of the worlds great jazz drummers, this man can really make his personal mark on an album without ever trying to dominate the proceedings. I find myself at times just listening to Sanchez's never ending creativity rather than the group as a whole.
The tunes are another strongpoint with Burton Sanchez and Lage all chipping in with some excellent compositions. The sound,as you would expect from the Mack Avenue label is excellent and the running time of just under an hour ensures that nobody overindulges in the soloing department and outstays their welcome.
An excellent album - can't wait for the next "New Quartet" offering.

What is there to say about Gary Burton, an icon of jazz music, a lifetime of brilliant playing. This latest line-up is excellent.
I first heard him live with Roy Haynes, Jerry Hahn and Steve Swallow on an English tour years ago, they were awesome.

This is a nice band that Gary is now fronting. He is always consistent but this new group seem exceptionally well attuned to his particular style. First rate playing and a good set too.

Gary Burton is really in a class of his own. He's seemingly inexhaustible in his ideas and his playing is a dream. Great band he's got together here too - smooth and groovy, very energetic, but very together.

A CD full of great ideas and wonderful playing - makes you feel good to be alive.

Saw this band at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival and could have listened all night. Bought the cd. Well worth it.
