Limited Edition 180g Vinyl 5LP Box Set!
First Career-Spanning Collection! Pressed at RTI!

Take Another Look encompasses the entirety of Gary Burton's 50+-year career, from his attention-grabbing early releases for industry powerhouse RCA Victor, through his wide-ranging sessions for Atlantic and his iconic ECM recordings, on to his fusion-era reinvention on GRP and his eclectic and generation-spanning efforts for Concord and Mack Avenue. This limited-run 5-LP box set (2-piece telescoping box) contains 180-gram black vinyl, 5 LP jackets and 12-page booklet. The set includes photos from Gary's personal collection and includes one previously unreleased track - "Elucidation." Neil Tesser wrote the liner notes.

Born in 1943 and raised in Indiana, Gary Burton taught himself to play the vibraphone and, at the age of 17, made his recording debut in Nashville, Tennessee, with guitarists Hank Garland and Chet Atkins. Two years later, Burton left his studies at Berklee College of Music to join George Shearing and subsequently Stan Getz, with whom he worked from 1964-1966. As a member of Getz's quartet, Burton won Down Beat magazine's Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition award in 1965. By the time he left Getz to form his own quartet in 1967, Burton had also recorded three albums under his name for RCA. Borrowing rhythms and sonorities from rock music, while maintaining jazz's emphasis on improvisation and harmonic complexity, Burton’s first quartet attracted large audiences from both sides of the jazz-rock spectrum. Such albums as Duster and Lofty Fake Anagram established Burton and his band as progenitors of the jazz fusion phenomenon.

"Throughout the 75 year old Burton's sprawling career, he's successfully taken note of and made use of cultural fashion, and mixed mallets with jazz, country and rock. In 2017 he decided to call it a career while still at the top of his game. This box set isn't grand enough to encapsulate all of Burton's musical accomplishments but it does a great job of giving listeners both a healthy dose of it and a means by which to explore some of the great original LP stops along the way. Add nice packaging, an excellently produced, written (by Neil Tesser) and presented full sized booklet, careful and competent mastering and pressing at RTI and you have a worthy send off Gary Burton set.... A superbly produced career retrospective that also serves as a buying guide for the great albums Burton created along the way." - Michael Fremer, Analog Planet, Music 10/11, Sound 9/11
