An American pianist living and working over the last decade in Rome, Detroit, and Boston Greg Burk 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 worked around Europe in the John Tchicai Quartet with Stefano Senni and Enzo Carpentieri and since the legendary saxophonistâ€™s death theyâ€™ve continued to work together. Greg Burk 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).
