Gary Burton on 50 Years in Jazz

Seven-time Grammy award winner Gary Burton talks about his 50 years in the jazz scene. He made his first recordings at age 17, has toured and recorded with a long list of famous jazz greats, and is one of only a few openly gay musicians in jazz. His autobiography Learning to Listen is one of the most personal and insightful jazz books ever written. Gary Burton is performing at the Blue Note through Sunday, September 22.

Combining Jazz and Rock... has it ever been successful? Not to these ears. I mean... why? What do you wind up with, poor Jazz or poor Rock. Something forced, a curiosity at best, not musically interesting, and not true to either.
