From www.garyburton.com: "Probably the big news of 2006 is another project with Pat Metheny. This came out of an experiment at the Montreal Jazz Festival this past summer. Pat suggested that we revive the songs from my early bands, circa 1967-77, and we got Steve Swallow to join the project given that he wrote a fair number of the tunes I played during that era. Along with Pat¹s regular drummer, Antonio Sanchez, we had a terrific concert in Montreal and immediately decided we should do something more with the concept. The result is a three-week tour being organized now for late spring, and a new recording scheduled for release later in the year." The tour dates announced so far are: May 26-27 Blue Note, Nagoya, Japan May 29-Jun 3 Blue Note, Tokyo, Japan June 5-6 Blue Note, Osaka, Japan June 8-11 Yoshi's, Oakland, CA June 12 Carmel, CA June 13 Santa Barbara, CA June 15 Ravinia, Chicago, IL June 16 East Lansing, MI These gigs will definitely be worth catching!
