AllMusic Review by

This session traces vibist Gary Burton's musical evolution during 1963-1968 with selections taken from eight of Burton's 13 RCA LPs. Burton was among the very first to incorporate elements of rock, pop, and freer forms of jazz into his own music without trivializing any of the styles. Artist's Choice is a fine retrospective of the early Gary Burton, although one wishes these sessions were available in full rather than piecemeal.
