Paying tribute to four legendary and influential jazz vibraphonists, vibes master GARY BURTON presents a varied program that displays not only his knowledge and assimilation of the entire history of the instrument, but also puts his unparalleled virtuosity and creativity on the vibraphone front-and-center. Putting a refreshingly unique and virtuosic spin on a collection of songs associated with Lionel "Hamp" Hampton and Red Norvo (both pioneers of the instrument in jazz), Milt "Bags" Jackson (who brought a lyrical approach to the vibes), and Cal Tjader (who made the vibraphone an important voice in cool jazz and Latin jazz), GARY BURTON at once honors the jazz vibraphone legacy, while steering it headfirst into creative, new territory.

"This is more or less the 75th anniversary of the vibes' invention, and I realized that this could be the right time to recognize the contributions of some of my favorite players." --Gary Burton
