John Burgess Sax + Luis D'Agostino Trio
24th May @ Chinnor RFC Pavilion
John Burgess - the Zeus of Saxophone
with The Luis D'Agostino Trio!
With the kind of resonant, full-bodied tone that makes the tenor sax seem like chosen instrument of Zeus, Burgess brings infinite technique to a thoroughly invigorating set of jazz standards. His style goes back to Miles Davis, John Coltrane era, but it's mixed with plenty of other influences, including the under-rated Stanley Turrentine
Former Berklee College student Scotland's John Burgess has toured extensively throughout Europe, Scandinavia and the Middle East, performing with many of the UK's finest jazz players. He has made several recordings as a sideman and in 1989 was the winner of the prestigious NFMS. Concert Artist Award. During a lengthy sojourn in San Francisco, Burgess immersed himself in the highly competitive Bay Area scene and he has appeared at jazz clubs all along the West Coast of America. In addition to contemporary jazz, Burgess has performed recitals of both baroque and 19th century French saxophone music and his tenor saxophone has been featured in several highly regarded blues and jump-jive groups.
John also plays with widely renowned Henry Franklin Trio. The members of the L.A. based group have performed either collectively or individually with Sonny Rollins, Pharaoh Sanders, Zoot Sims, Dexter Gordon and Freddie Hubbard. Burgess has appeared on several notable recent recordings including "COMPARED TO WHAT" with the Harry Beckett Quintet, "DIAMONDS IN THE NIGHT" by the highly acclaimed folk duo Andy Shanks & Jim Russell and "PENDULUM" by London's ground-breaking drum'n'bass/jazz outfit "Blowpipe". John is touring the UK in March & Sept 2007 - Concert Jazz is fortunate to be in the frame in May.
