Gary Burton (b. January 23, 1943, Anderson, Indiana) is an American jazz vibraphonist.
A true original on the vibraphone, Burton developed a pianistic style of four-mallet technique as an alternative to the usual two-mallets. This approach caused Burton to be heralded as an innovator and his sound and technique are widely imitated. He is also known for pioneering fusion jazz and popularizing the duet format in jazz, as well as being a major figure in jazz education.
Burton is notable as one of very few openly gay musicians in jazz history, and has stated that his coming out in his 40s had no adverse consequences for his career.
Working with members of Piazzolla\'s crack ensembles, Burton reverently addresses the romantic temperament that infused all the work of the great composer and bandoneon virtuoso.
The track \"Mi Refugio,\" features Gary Burton overdubbed on a rare solo performance by Astor Piazzolla.
Personnel: Gary Burton (vibraphone); Daniel Binelli, Marcelo Nisinman, Astor Piazzolla (bandoneon); Fernando Suarez-Paz (violin); Pablo Ziegler, Makoto Ozone, Nicolas Ledesma (piano); Horacio Malvicino (guitar); Hector Console (bass).
Recorded at El Pie Recording Studios, Buenos Aires, Argentina from December 2-5, 1996. Includes liner notes by Horacio Ferrer, Laura Escalada Piazzolla and Fernando Gonzalez.
