    WORKS takes a look at Gary Burton's projects for ECM during several productive years in the mid-'70s. On the albums from which these tracks were culled, Burton didn't explore material as far-flung as that recorded in his prior years with RCA. That earlier period yielded tangos with Astor Piazzolla, country outings with Nashville players, and a "dark opera without words" composed for him by Carla Bley. But within the chamber jazz context that he did pursue, his breadth and varied approaches are quite bracing.
    WORKS features duets from three different albums, pairing Burton with pianist Chick Corea, bass player Steve Swallow, and guitarist Ralph Towner. Burton's exciting NEW QUARTET (which marked his debut with the ECM label) is also represented, as are his subsequent quintet (including the then unknown Pat Metheny) and works that augment Burton's core ensemble with a chamber orchestra. This set makes an excellent starting point for those looking to explore Burton's ECM recordings.
