Course Description:

Vibraphonist Gary Burton's storied career as a performer, recording artist, teacher, and improvisor can only be equaled by his impact as a mentor to generations of musicians, including jazz icon Pat Metheny. In this revealing two-part offering, jazz pianist Biff Smith examines the mastery and influence of these two legends who have both become synonymous with the title, "Grammy Award-Winning Artist."
