Its not just gary burton the vibraphonist but mostly clarinettist Eddie Daniels too. The sing sing sing version is ok( what do you expect from a quartet too cover that whole song)but the moonglow version is very very very very engaging to the listener. especially to a benny goodman fan whose own recordings of moonglow cant come close to this version(ok not really but still their version is unique)...

Whatever you do, get track 10 first!

Track 10, "My Romance" is really a nice song that displays the skills of Gary Burton in a nice duet between the vibraphone and piano. "Moonglow", track 5, is also nice but to a much lesser extent.
