Good Vibes - Gary Burton
Funky, soulful set from jazz vibesman Burton, released on Atlantic in 1969. Not quite fusion, more like a jazz guy playing rock and soul. Highlights are grooving opener Vibrafinger, and versions of Otis's Pain in My Heart and Aretha's I Never Loved a Man. Disappointingly, Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys is not attempted. As ever the case with jazz albums I stumble upon by accident and enjoy, jazz critics think it's shit.
