A popular phrase in years past was “Life Begins at 60,” but Gary Burton—as he has done so often throughout his career—is rewriting the book on retirement.
Gary Burton's debut on Mack Avenue Records, Common Ground, found the Grammy-winner returning to the quartet configuration for the first time in 20 years. Known for pioneering the four-mallet technique, Burton has been described by Jazz Times as one of the "most important vibraphonists in the history of jazz." This vinyl release of Common Ground is a double-LP on 180-gram virgin vinyl, sourced from the original 96/24 masters.
On Gary Burton’s debut release on Mack Avenue Records Common Ground,, the Grammy®-winning pioneer of the four-mallet technique of playing the vibes is not only delivering his first studio album since 2005, but is also introducing his latest band.
