Thanks! Share it with your friends!


New Vibe Man in Town is the debut album by vibraphonist Gary Burton recorded in 1961 and released on the RCA label.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
Vibraphonist Gary Burton’s debut as a leader shows that he was a brilliant player from the start of his career. Utilizing a sparse trio that includes bassist Gene Cherico and drummer Joe Morello, Burton (even at this early stage) sounds quite original and unlike his predecessors (Lionel Hampton, Red Norvo, and Milt Jackson). Highlights include “Joy Spring,” “You Stepped Out of a Dream,” and Burton’s original “Our Waltz.” This boppish set is easily recommended.(

Joy Spring” (Clifford Brown) – 3:39
