George Burton Quintet

With pianist George Burton

“George Burton represents what many of jazz’s most exciting figures hoped the genre would become: precarious, dynamic, revolutionary… unable to be contained.” – Nextbop

The George Burton Quintet performs a heady brand of post-bop that JazzTimes has aptly described as “straight-but-not-straight.” This music boldly demands attention, yet it’s readily accessible for anyone willing to provide it. Each tune hits hard, with melodic and groove-oriented underpinnings that are thoroughly explored and expanded, usually across a series of distinctive solos. Burton’s compositions and leadership reflect his multifaceted experiences as a musician: from his early classical training, to his years on the Philly jazz scene (with the shades of R&B and hip-hop influences for which it’s known), to his current gig as pianist in the Sun Ra Arkestra. With this group he has crafted a sound of his own, a beautiful yet hard-edged mix of traditions and contemporary influences.
