What the critics had to say about Nothing, Knowing:
“A lot of piano trio recordings are released every year, but for sheer scope and unencumberedJohn Kelman, All About Jazz
interplay that magically retains a sense of lyricism throughout, Nothing, Knowing stands out”
“Without a doubt, one of the finest piano trio offerings I’ve heard in a long while.” Bruce Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery
Burk’s passionate solo piano, characterised by the seamless combination ofcomposition and improvisation, has been documented on his threecritically acclaimed solo recordings: The Way In 482 Music, Clean Spring SteepleChase Records, As A River Tonos Records. The solo recital best reflects Greg’s background growing up in an environment of classical music, as well as the influence of his teachers,Paul Bley and Yusef Lateef.
“The sustained complementary independence of Burk’s limbs borders on the preternatural. Derek Taylor, Dusted Magazine
Piano recitals are a near quotidian exercise these days in the crowded jazz arena.
Burk’s latest sortie in the idiom boldly stands out.”
“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.” Jerry D’Souza, All About Jazz
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.
