JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2011 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Many Worlds with Greg Burk  at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

"Many Worlds with Greg Burk" were the most adventurous band we have seen at this year's festival and they were one of the best. Led by Detroit's and now Rome's Greg Burk on piano they indeed explored many worlds. They aired out their arrangements to the point where they teetered, just long enough to make you wonder who's in charge and then they were off again. They have enough confidence and trust in each other to pull way back intensifying their music with every rest. Colorful arrangements featured flute, soprano and tenor sax, a great bass player and a loose limbed, left handed drummer made for an extremely melodic set. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
