Vinyl Vault: "Ring" - Gary Burton Quintet

Jan 6, 2018

This week’s "Vinyl Vault" will feature a 1974 ECM release from the Gary Burton Quintet, “Ring.” Eberhard Weber on bass joins the quintet making for a two bass ensemble. The album also features a 19-year-old Pat Metheny, two years before his debut as a bandleader. Mick Goodrick is another guitarist on the album and Steve Swallow is the other bass player. The whole thing is anchored by Bob Moses on drums. The music melodically floats in that ethereal ECM way while understated grooves come and go like clouds across the sun. Experience it! Join Geoff Anderson on Tuesday, January 9 at 8:30 on KUVO.
