Gary Burton’s legacy is an estimable one, a wealth of riches traversing the boundaries of genre, style, nation or generation. It’s nearly impossible to summarize such an adventurous career, but Take Another Look: A Career Retrospective offers a stunning and well-curated overview in 35 tracks over five 180-gram vinyl LPs – including one previously unreleased offering from his New Quartet, a rendition of Pat Metheny’s “Elucidation” from 2005. The included booklet features rare photos, ephemera and insightful liner notes by Neil Tesser: critic, radio host, GRAMMY®-winning author, and editor of Gary Burton’s acclaimed autobiography Learning To Listen (Berklee Press, 2013)

The collaborators represented on Take Another Look are a staggering array of marquee names from the jazz world and beyond: icons like Chick Corea, Keith Jarrett, Jim Hall, Roy Haynes, Steve Lacy, Michael Brecker, Carla Bley, Steve Swallow, Dave Holland, Stéphane Grappelli, tango master Astor Piazzolla and pioneering soul drummer Bernard Purdie; genre-blurring fusion greats including Bob James, Peter Erskine, and Will Lee; Burton discoveries-turned-jazz-giants such as John Scofield, Larry Coryell, Pat Metheny, and Julian Lage; ECM staples Ralph Towner, Eberhard Weber, and Wolfgang Muthspiel; and countless others.
