George Burton

For more than a decade, the young pianist, composer and bandleader George Burton has been on the radar of everyone who keeps up with innovations in jazz. Praised as “formidable” by NPR, and “charismatic” by The New York Times, Burton's dazzling virtuosity and breathtakingly eclectic approach to music reflect his experience in every aspect of the jazz spectrum: beginning with rigorous classical training, branching into his equally rigorous experience in the heady nightlife of the Philadelphia jazz scene, and earning him a place on the world stage with some of the most significant practitioners of bop, post-bop and beyond—from James Carter to Meshell Ndegeocello to the Sun Ra Arkestra—and has landed him on some of the most prestigious of stages with his own groups as a leader, including the Newport Jazz Festival in 2017.
