This past summer, I read Learning to Listen: The Jazz Journey of Gary Burton: An Autobiography by Gary Burton as part of BookChattr on DrumChattr.com. It is a good book that I would highly recommend to any musician. This video features the standard, Armando’s Rhumba by Chick Corea. Gary and Chick have performed for the past 40 years as a piano/vibraphone duo and here they perform on one vibraphone.
