Liber’Tango – Tribute to Gary Burton

    Gary Burton discovered Astor Piazzolla during a trip to Buenos Aires in 1965, however it was not until twenty years later that their fruitful partnership took shape. Piazzolla composed several magnificent pieces for Burton which affirm his undeniable attraction to the vibraphone. Gary Burton is a leading jazz musician and an extraordinary virtuoso he pays tribute to Piazzolla by playing and recording many of his works.

 

    The sensitive performer and remarkable improviser Vincent Maillard is following in this prestigious and inspiring lineage by taking up this fascinating repertoire with the Caliente Quartet and regularly enriching it with new original arrangements. His stimulating creativity opens up new horizons for the group, in an astonishing alchemy of sound.
