New Gary Burton Quartet at Neuroscience Institute

The Athenaeum Jazz At The Neurosciences Institute kicks off their autumn concert series on Oct. 12 with an appearance by the New Gary Burton Quartet, in support of their new CD on the Mack Avenue record label, Common Ground.

Burton is a master of the vibraphone who rose to prominence in the 1960s, in groups led by pianist George Shearing and saxophonist Stan Getz. He was one of the original recording artists for the groundbreaking German record label ECM in the early '70s, releasing important duo albums with Keith Jarrett and Chick Corea.

His quartets have served as a springboard for emergent jazz guitarists : Larry Coryell, Mick Goodrick, Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Wolfgang Muthspiel, and Julian Lage have all reached maturity under his wing.

His New Quartet reunites him with Lage, (who's only 23 — yet has a 10-year association with Burton), and includes in-demand NYC bassist Scott Colley, and, usually, Pat Metheny Group drummer Antonio Sanchez.

Sanchez has a previous commitment to Metheny, so he will be spelled on Wednesday's concert by the former Weather Report sideman Peter Erskine.

Burton's vibraphone approach is nothing short of astonishing. He is the pioneer of the "four-mallet" technique, which enables him to strike out branches of intricate melodies interlaced with complex harmonies in a manner that did not exist prior to his ascendance.

Lage is developing into a major voice on the electric guitar, and, much like his predecessors, seems destined for greater individual recognition.

This concert represents the completion of a full circle of sorts for me. The Gary Burton Quartet with John Scofield on guitar was one of the first jazz concerts I witnessed some 30 years ago while attending San Diego State; they played at the now-defunct Back Door, a small basement club run by students.

The Neurosciences Institute has sparkling acoustics and is located at 10640 John Jay Hopkins Dr. The concert begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $27 for members, $32 for nonmembers, and $15 for students with valid ID at the door.
