Tennessee Firebird

Tennessee Firebird is an album by vibraphonist Gary Burton recorded in 1966 and released on the RCA label.[1]


The Allmusic review by Ron Wynn stated: "While the concept of 'jazz-rock' was in its embryonic stages, Burton was experimenting with a style combining jazz improvisation with rock energy and rhythms. This 1967 session added another ingredient to the musical mix: country and bluegrass sensibility".[2]
