Jazz at the Maltings: The Gary Burton Quartet


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
from the Aldeburgh Festival Concert Hall
A weekly series featuring some of the world's top jazz artists in concert
Introduced by Benny Green
(The Gary Burton Quartet appear by arrangement with Harold Davison)

Gary Burton is one of the most phenomenal young musicians ever to have appeared on the jazz scene. Still in his middle twenties, which is young even for a jazz musician, Burton has already impressed musicians, critics, and audiences alike with his astounding technique, his ravishing melodic flair, and the irresistible rhythmic surge for playing. Burton, whose casual physical appearance is vaguely reminiscent of The Old West, plays the vibraphone in a style which is completely original, and his mastery of the difficult art of manipulating four mallets simultaneously enables him at times to produce pianistic textures. A one-time member of both the George Shearing and Stan Getz groups, Burton seems more likely than anyone of his generation to give the tired art of jazz fresh impetus.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
