Musician

Charles Burnham

The passion and fire of Charlie Burnham's violin has graced the work of many: Cassandra Wilson, James Blood Ulmer, Steven Bernstein, Susie Ibbara, Peter Apfelbaum, Henry Threadgrill, String Trio of New York, Ted Daniel,Medeski, Martin & Wood, and many, many others. But armed with a wholenew book of originals and a stellar new band, Burnham's step into thespotlight has long been coming. Wordly and other-worldly sounds canbe heard from Burnham's musical and personal journeys as his soulfulvoice and violin lead you down some open roads and dark alleys, and bring you to some spots you may not have known even exist. Charles Burnham-violin and vocals; Clark Gayton-trombone; Curtis Fowlkes-trombone; Mark Peterson-bass; Pheeroan akLaff- drums
