Personnel: Gary Burton (vibraphone, marimba, organ); Steve Swallow (piano, bass).
Recorded at Aengus Studio, Fayville, Massachusetts on May 13 & 14, 1974.
With HOTEL HELLO, longtime collaborators vibraphonist Gary Burton and bassist Steve Swallow deliver a stylistically mixed bag of tunes that showcases both of the musicians' thoughtful, measured approaches to improvisation. Swallow's talents as a composer and pianist are also on display, and his work in these areas mirrors the feel of his cerebral, always just-so bass lines. Fans of the spacious "ECM sound" will find a lot to like here, but the duo also throws a few curve balls: the wah-wah-infused "Inside In" finds Swallow atypically bringing the funk, while the typewriter-like rhythms of "Hotel Overture" make the tune sound a bit like Weather Report jamming on an evening news theme.
