Greg Burk, solo piano.
Burk's fourth release in as many years further documents his trademark synergy of freedom and structure. The all-original program features reinterpretations of previously composed works, organically developed free improvisations and explorations of the non-traditional sound potential of the piano.
"Burk's seemingly paradoxical ability to sound both considered and unfettered is a marvel," wrote AllAboutJazz.com Senior Editor John Kelman of 2005's , featuring Steve Swallow and Bob Moses. Other critics agreed, writing "Burk puts a collage of ideas into each piece" (Jim Santella, Cadence), "he mixes idioms with the finesse of someone decades older" (Bill Shoemaker, PointofDeparture.org), and "Technically, Burk is a complete pianist, and he's intellectually curious enough to exploit the instrument's total sound-making capacity" (Chris Kelsey, JazzTimes).
