More from Gary Burton

A couple of days ago, this blog featured a video of vibraphonist Gary Burton and a Quintet which included three members of Piazzolla's second quintet playing in concert at Rosario, Argentina. There have been five more videos of that concert series posted on YouTube. The one featured today, Escualo, was shot at the Gran Rex in Buenos Aires and is best of the five. Both the sound and video quality are much better than most of the others and there are some great shots of Fernando Suarez Paz playing what has almost become his "signature" piece. You may note professional videocams moving through the video. I hope that means a concert DVD or a television special is on the way.

The video was provided by Pilar Romero, a singer born in Chile but living now in Buenos Aires. Romero's work was new to me but I must say I enjoyed much of the music she shares on her MySpace page. Give it a try after you view this video. She has also posted two other videos from the same concert. You can find them on her YouTube channel.
