New Gary Burton Quartet 70th Birthday Tour with Arturo Sandoval
FEATURING:

Scott Colley, bass
Antonio Sanchez, drums
Julian Lage, guitar

Special Guest:

Arturo Sandoval, trumpet

On Gary Burtons 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. Known as the New Gary Burton Quartet, the group is comprised of guitarist Julian Lage, bassist Scott Colley and drummer Antonio Sanchez. Common Ground features 10 tunes, including six remarkable originals by quartet members as well as two impressive numbers by pianist Vadim Neselovskyi (a former Burton band member), a gem from the Keith Jarrett songbook and an intriguing arrangement of the standard My Funny Valentine, spotlighting Lage.



Well-known throughout his five-decade career for his quartets (beginning with his 1967 group featuring Larry Coryell, Roy Haynes and Steve Swallow), Burton is returning to the configuration for the first time since the mid-90s. He expresses great enthusiasm for the new bands alchemy.

The quartet served as a reunion of Lage with Burton who has known the guitarist since he was a teen wunderkind and has featured him in his bands up until three years ago. (During the hiatus from working together, Burton was focusing on revisiting the 1973 chamber jazz classic Crystal Silence duo with Chick Corea, while Lage finished college and worked on his long-awaited debut album, Sounding Point.) Julian has matured so much since I first met him 10 years ago when he was 12 years old, Burton says. Julian has kept on growing and developing a sound of his own. Hes a knock out. Lage fills the quartet guitar chair that was once held by such rising-star sixstringers as Pat Metheny, John Scofield and Kurt Rosenwinkel, among others.



Ive always liked the vibraphone-guitar sound, says Burton, whose masterful vibes glisten throughout Common Ground. Its something that I discovered when Nashville country guitarist Hank Garland invited me in the 60s to record with him. The sound of the two instruments together has an ideal timbre and coolness. For the quartets rhythm section, Burton called Sanchez, who has played with the vibraphonist on and off in recent years. But Colley is new to Burtons employ. Once I decided to have Antonio be a part of the group, I asked him what bass player hed suggest, and he said Scott is the one, says Burton. They are a terrific rhythm team.

Formed in 2010, the new quartets first gig took place in August at the Red Sea Jazz Festival, and then took New York by storm with a weeklong, sold-out engagement at the Blue Note from October 19-24. After that, the group toured, road tested their material and entered the studio in New York for a three-day session December 4-6 to record Common Ground. Longtime friends with Mack Avenue president Denny Stilwell and marketing vice president Randall Kennedy, Burton approached the label about the new band and proposed recording an album showcasing it. They were both keenly interested, says Burton, who also serves as the albums producer. And the band was excited. Theyre all talented composers and brought music to the group that really stands out.
