"This recently released 5LP Mack Avenue Records box set celebrates Gary Burton's incredible six decades of outstanding music making, organized chronologically and by label, beginning with his earliest and arguably best sounding recordings on the RCA Victor label where he began recording, first as a sideman, during the summer between high school and his enrollment at The Berklee College of Music. The Indiana native was first 'discovered' by 'Yakety' saxophonist Boots Randolph at an Evansville, Indiana club and made his way to RCA through Chet Atkins and fellow guitarist Hank Garland. ... In 2017 he decided to call it a career while still at the top of his game. This box set isn't grand enough to encapsulate all of Burton's musical accomplishments but it does a great job of giving listeners both a healthy dose of it and a means by which to explore some of the great original LP stops along the way." — Music = 10/11; Sound = 9/11 — Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com. Read the whole review here.
Mack Avenue was honored to be Gary Burton's final music home, releasing two critically acclaimed albums by his remarkable New Quartet featuring guitarist and protégé Julian Lage, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Antonio Sánchez. But Take Another Look encompasses the entirety of Burton's 50+-year career, from his attention-grabbing early releases for industry powerhouse RCA Victor, through his wide-ranging sessions for Atlantic and his iconic ECM recordings, on to his fusion-era reinvention on GRP and his eclectic and generation-spanning efforts for Concord and Mack Avenue.
