Jeffrey Burr

The progeny of two classical bassists, Jeffrey Burr was encouraged to study music seriously from a young age, but chose the guitar as his instrument anyway. On the way to Rock Stardom, some Charlie Parker sides got through somehow, and Jeffrey wound up spending several years studying jazz improvisation. At sixteen he performed with bop grandmaster Dizzy Gillespie. After earning his BA at the renowned William Paterson College, Jeffrey moved his shed to Brooklyn and generally made a nuisance of himself in the NYC jazz scene. This one time, he played with Norah Jones, but she wasn't famous yet. Before returning to the Bay Area from whence he sprang, Jeffrey recorded “Bright Blue” which is receiving critical acclaim as you read this.
