    Learning To Listen

    In the mid-1980s, Gary Burton was just entering middle age, but he’d had experiences as a jazz player to fill several lifetimes. Duke Ellington had treated him with kindness, Milt Jackson with suspicion, Miles Davis with a death threat. And Stan Getz? Book review by Siddhartha Miller for the BOSTON GLOBE

    Gary Burton at 70: Taking Care of Business

    Burton has been an innovator on several fronts: virtuoso soloist as well as influential bandleader and educator. He’s discovered one future star after another as well as ushered in the new wave of “jazz-rock fusion.”

    The Jazzman With a Debt to Nashville

    There’s a moment in “Learning to Listen: The Jazz Journey of Gary Burton,” an autobiography due out on Sept. 3 from Berklee Press, that depicts the author’s earliest encounter with Miles Davis. It happened at a summer jazz festival in Mr. Burton’s home state, Indiana, and probably could have gone a little better. Review by Nate Chinen for NEW YORK TIMES

    TKA Artists Win 5 Grammys

Sharing the stage with The Black Keys and Dr. John were Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Newcomers Quetzal won for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album.

    Corea & Burton deliver a house of sound at Aeolian

    They are pros, sharing their inventive genius, their prodigious techniques, their communicative skills. Hyperbole? Hero worship? Nope! Corea & Burton are true stars and London was lucky to experience their magic. Review by Renée Silberman for BEAT MAGAZINE

    Chick Corea and Gary Burton at the Barbican

    These days jazz is transforming itself in all kinds of ways, which is all to the good. But there’s still a special, innocent pleasure to be had from a straight-ahead jazz gig when it’s done with superlative skill, wit and charm. Review by Ivan Hewett for THE TELEGRAPH.

    NPR Reviews Burton's Common Ground

    By using four mallets on vibes instead of two, Burton can lay down bittersweet chords like a piano romantic. But those extra tentacles also let him do fast octopus dances in complex rhythm, a kind of throwback to '70s jazz-rock. Review by Kevin Whitehead for NPR MUSIC
