"Veteran pianist Dave Burrell personifies the best of neoclassicism, uncompromising individuality and in-the-moment gusto." -The New Yorker

Since the mid-1960s, Dave Burrell has contributed to nearly 150 recordings including pivotal works such as Archie Shepp's Attica Blues, Pharoah Sanders' Tauhid, Marion Brown's Three for Shepp and Grammy Award-winner David Murray's Lovers and Ballads. A recipient of the Pew Fellowship in Jazz Composition, Burrell's recent releases include Expansion with his Full-Blown Trio with William Parker and Andrew Cyrille - which was nominated as The Village Voice's #2 Jazz album of 2004 -, the reissue of 1970's After Love (Universal Records) featuring Roscoe Mitchell, and Consequences, his first recording with Medeski, Martin and Wood percussionist Billy Martin.

This performance is co-presented by Ars Nova Workshop at the Rosenbach Museum & Library.
