Every once in a great while, the stars align and the muses visit a concert hall to smile beneficently on the musicians assembled there. How else to account for the ineffable chemistry that infuses the best jazz concerts?
Well, the muses were working overtime when vibraphonist Gary Burton took to the stage with the Hum Trio and then The Ahmad Jamal Trio.
The resulting performance must rank among these musicians best work, with the kind of soul-deep communication that is often expected but so rarely occurs live in concert. NOTE: Gary's set with Ahmad Jamal is the same as the second set of DVD #D574 "Ahmad Jamal."
