Gary Burton & Makoto Ozone


This celebrated vibraphone player pioneered an intricate four-mallet technique and now serves as a dean a the Berklee College of Music. He always excels at building up a compelling supporting context around his idiosyncratic instrument, whether as a bandleader or in more barebones duo formats. Here he performs with Makoto Ozone, a Japanese jazz pianist and former student with whom he once released an unusual album of classical compositions with overlaid jazz solos.
