Concert Radio Broadcast of Gary Burton's Arrival
Since arriving as a student at Berklee in 1960, Gary Burton has led groups that have defined jazz's state-of-the-art for five decades, while forming lasting relationships and winning six Grammy Awards. In a rousing, all-hands-on-deck concert celebration in the Berklee Performance Center this past April, Burton was joined by bandmates from his seminal groups.
The concert, Gary Burton's Arrival: Celebrating 50 Years, will be broadcast from coast to coast on NPR's JazzSet, beginning Friday, January 21. 140 NPR affiliate stations nationwide will carry the program; it will be available on demand on NPRmusic.org throughout 2011; and SiriusXM Radio's Real Jazz channel will carry the show on February 5.
Artists appearing in the concert include Chick Corea; John Scofield; Abraham Laboriel; Joe Lovano; Mick Goodrick; Steve Swallow; Harry Blazer; Antonio Sanchez; Donny McCaslin; Jim Odgren; Makoto Ozone; and Tiger Okoshi; and Burton's Next Generation Band with Julian Lage, Vadim Neselovskyi, Luques Curtis, and James Williams.
In Boston, the concert will air on 89.7 WGBH, Saturday, January 22 at 10:00 p.m. The concert recording was engineered by Berklee Music Production and Engineering Department associate professor of Alejandro Rodriguez.
