Gary Burton Booking Agency Profile

Book Gary Burton for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Gary Burton is a five-time Grammy Award Winner, self-taught vibraphone virtuoso, professor of percussion at the Berklee School of Music, host of his own SIRIUS satellite radio program on the Pure Jazz station and true innovator and pioneer in the world of jazz. He is credited with inventing the four mallet playing style, introducing the electric guitar to the jazz ensemble and discovering the talents of John Scofield, Pat Metheny and Larry Coryell. Don't miss this once in a lifetime performance. Born and raised in Indiana, Gary Burton taught himself to play the vibraphone. At the age of seventeen he made his recording debut in Nashville, Tennessee, with guitarists Hank Garland and Chet Atkins. Two years later, Burton left his studies at Berklee College of Music to join George Shearing and subsequently Stan Getz. As a member of Getz’s quartet, Burton won Down Beat magazine’s Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition Award. Borrowing rhythms and sonorities from rock music, while maintaining jazz’s emphasis on improvisation and harmonic complexity, Burton’s first quartet attracted large audiences from both sides of the jazz-rock spectrum..
