greg's projects

THE DETROIT SONGBOOK: In the early 90s, Greg was living and playing on the rich jazz scene of Detroit. This trio performs the music written by Burk during those years reinterpreted through the lens of 20 years of experience. Accompanied by bassist Matteo Bortone and drummer John B. Arnold, this repertoire focuses on the swinging tradition that Detroit is so well known for.

SOLO PIANO Burk's critically acclaimed SteepleChase debut, "Clean Spring" features the multi-dimentional solo piano style of Burk, and reflects both his childhood growing up in a family of Classical musicians, as well as the influence of his teachers, Paul Bley and Yusef Lateef. In reviewing Burk's first solo recording The Way In (2006, 482 Music) Jerry D'Souza in AAJ aptly writes: "this very moving music compels introspection as we watch and listen while Burk brings us into intimate contact with his soul, both human and musical." Burk's solo performances combine melodic compositions, visceral "groove canons" and dramatic improvisations.

ECSTATIC WEANDERINGS Burk has performed in duo with legendary drummer Rakalam Bob Moses since 2004. This powerful duo is captured on the Jazzwerkstatt release "Ecstatic Weanderings".  In addition, Burk has recorded/performed in duo with musical giant John Tchicai, Irish tenor saxophonist Michael Buckley, Finnish composer/saxophonist Pekka Pylkkanen and Portugese trumpet master Hugo Alves.
