The George Burton Sextet

Even before the first note is vibrated, pianist, composer, educator, and arranger George Burton’s regal presence has an air of requesting listeners’ attention — igniting an inherent awareness that something unrivaled is about to go down. In a time when musicians strive to define and refine their sound, George emerges as a game-changer whose acclaimed sound has evolved into an electrifying experience. His exchange of haunting melodies, surprising harmonies, angular rhythms, pointed chords, use of space, and rhythmic elasticity bring deliverance from the traditional rules of engagement, uniting all in an organic harmonic symbiosis.
