A new album and a new quartet. Vibraphonist Gary Burton recorded his latest CD Common Ground with his new lineup and he is particularly proud of it - and of the members of his group. "This is a wonderful rhythm section," according to the bandleader. And these are not new faces with whom Burton (1943) is touring. Guitarist Julian Lage has played with the vibraphonist since he was just fifteen (!) but in the past few years Lage had to complete his studies at the Berklee School of Music. Scott Colley is very much in demand as a bassist in New York and worked with Burton in a concert at the Lincoln Center. Drummer Antonio Sanchez is also part of an ensemble in which Burton has played with guitarist Pat Metheny. So, Burton has brought together his favorite musicians together to form a new quartet. That promises to be quite something in Rotterdam.
