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

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Ron Wynn awarded the album 3 stars stating "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]
