Gary Burton The New Quartet - Tying Up Loose Ends

Gary Burton – vibraphone
Michael Goodrick – guitar
Abraham Laboriel – bass
Harry Blazer – drums

Gordon Beck - composer

I love this piece, hadn't heard it for decades.


Same players, Gary Burton composition

Gary Burton's retirement from playing last March was a watershed moment in the history of Jazz.  No matter what else could be said about it, he went out at the top because that's the only place he'd ever been in his musical career.

Update:  Nonsequence 

Same musicians as above,  Mike Gibb composer

What great musicians, Abraham Laboriel's bass playing is so wonderful but all of them were great, one of my favorite jazz records from my early adulthood.
