Before I say anything about this album one of Burton's poorest selling albums ever , let me just say that even in this day and age I thought the chances of ever seeing this album on CD in the U.
As you can see these musicians are some of the best in their genres. Burton was influenced by Dylan's "Blonde On Blonde" album that had recently been released which gave him the idea of a country-jazz type of album.
This is a Japanese edition complete with outer edge paper slip , and the notes are in Japanese except for song titles, but the back of the booklet has a repro of the original vinyl album notes in English, written by Burton which are enlightening. The sound is very good--clean with a slight warmth and openness with no harsh digital feel.
The arrangements do a good job of incorporating both jazz and country musics into a different sounding blend. But "Tennessee Firebird" may still come as a shock. This is Burton's most country sounding album of his career--a sound that he would gradually leave behind as he ventured closer to jazz--especially when he recorded for the ECM label--with a much cooler overall sound.
This is a chance to hear Burton very early when country music was still greatly influencing him. And for fans like me of his early albums especially this is worth adding to your Burton spot on your music shelf.
Never again would Burton incorporate so much country music into his sound, and it's enlightening to hear him trying to do do. One of my small once-again-available album prayers has been answered. And if you want to know more about Burton and his music and jazz in general as he experienced it check out his autobiography "Learning To Listen". Showing 0 comments.
