Gary Burton: vibraphoneMick Goodrick: guitarAbraham Laboriel: bassHarry Blazer: drumsAs well as being the great vibes innovator of the era, Gary Burton has been a most astute talent scout. In 1973, The New Quartet introduced Abraham Laboriel: this was the first recording of the bassist who would shortly become one of the most in-demand session players across all genres. ?It must be emphasised that Laboriel sounds like a major artist in the making with his astonishing bass work,? wrote Melody Maker. Guitarist Mick Goodrick also emerged as a player to watch with this album, shining in a well-conceived programme with compositions of Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, Carla Bley, Mike Gibbs and bandleader Burton.
