Gary Burton has assembled his "dream band" for Like Minds. With his former
protege Pat Metheny, duet partner Chick Corea, favorite drummer Roy Haynes and
legendary bassist Dave Holland, Burton has formed an ensemble of staggering
proportions. Giants all, this is more than a collection of "all-stars;" it is a
cohesive entity. The music is performed as if by one mind and soul with five
The recorded results are stupendous to say the least. Original compositions by
Metheny and Corea abound, as do two from Burton himself. Metheny's "Question and
Answer" gets the proceedings off to a nice start as the rich sonorities provide
an elegant backdrop to some fine soloing. Corea's delightful "Windows" is a
deceptively intricate waltz that makes for some nice interplay between Burton
and Metheny. Although he's not a prolific composer, Burton's own "Country Roads"
and the jumping title track provide evidence enough that he is a master in this
area as well. As an added treat, Gershwin's "Soon" shows just what masters of
this stature can do with a great old standard. Finally, Corea's racing "Straight
Up And Down" is a burning ending to this dream of a session.
