Throb is an album by vibraphonist Gary Burton recorded in 1969 and released on the Atlantic label.[1]

Release and reception

Originally released on vinyl in 1969, the album was paired with Gary Burton's collaboration album with Keith Jarrett on a commercial CD release before being re-issued in Japan on CD.[2] The Allmusic review by Ron Wynn awarded the album 3 stars, stating, "Burton continued the jazz-cum-rock and country experimentation that marked other LPs like Tennessee Firebird and Duster".[3] The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings describes the album as “magnificent”, and “one of the most evocative records produced at the time.”[4]
