Greg Burk

Pianist/composer/educator Greg Burk has lived, studied, educated and performed around the world. Over the last decade, living and working in Detroit, Boston and now Rome, he has established himself not only as a vital sideman, but also as a leader with the rare ability to combine original compositions with memorable melodies and a desire to push the creative envelope as an improviser.

He has been called “an exceptional pianist/composer” (All Music Guide), “a pianist and composer with vigorous, freewheeling ideas that always feel grounded within a well-reasoned structure” (Boston Herald), “a pianist with a gift for melody and a generous touch that makes you want to like him” (LA Weekly), and a musician that “plays with an apparent love and passion for his craft” (AllAboutJazz).
