DesmondGary Burton & Makoto Ozone - Tango livegigs

#1
Gary Burton (born January 23, 1943) is an American jazz vibraphonist, composer, and educator. Burton developed a pianistic style of four-mallet technique as an alternative to the prevailing two-mallet technique. This approach caused him to be heralded as an innovator, and his sound and technique are widely imitated.[1] He is also known for pioneering fusion jazz 
and popularizing the duet format in jazz, as well as being a major figure in music education from his 30 years at the Berklee College of Music. Burton retired from performing in March 2017 following a farewell tour with pianist and longtime collaborator Makoto Ozone.[5]Makoto Ozone (小曽根真 Ozone Makoto, born March 25, 1961 in Kobe) is a Japanese jazz pianist.
He began playing organ at two and by seven was an improviser. He appeared on Japanese television with his father from 1968 to 1970. At twelve he switched to piano after being impressed by albums by Oscar Peterson. In 1980 he entered the Berklee College of  Music and later worked with Gary Burton. He also had his debut in 1983 before returning  to his native Japan.
Ozone has collaborated with vocalist Kimiko Itoh. They appeared as a duo at the Montreux Jazz Festival,[1] and he produced her album Kimiko, which won the 2000 Swing Journal jazz disk grand prix for Japanese vocalist.[2] In September 2003, Ozone was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Music from Berklee College of Music.
