Real Life Hits

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Gary Burton has always been notable for his ability to recognize talent in young players. The first time he regularly featured a pianist with his quartet was in the mid-'80s, when he helped bring pianist Makoto Ozone to prominence. With electric bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Mike Hyman completing the group, Burton and Ozone explore originals by Carla Bley including the title cut, John Scofield "The Beatles", Swallow, Ozone, and an obscurity, plus Duke Ellington's "Fleurette Africaine." The appealing group sound and the spontaneous yet tight ensembles and solos make this a worthwhile acquisition.
