Zankel-Burrell-Parker-Cyrille Quartet

Bobby Zankel, alto saxophone
Dave Burrell, piano
William Parker, bass
Andrew Cyrille, drums

Ars Nova Workshop and the Warriors of the Wonderful Sound are pleased to present a unique quartet performance in celebration of Philadelphia pianist Dave Burrell’s 75th birthday.

Burrell’s seminal 60s and 70s work with Archie Shepp, Pharoah Sanders, Roscoe Mitchell, and David Murray, as well as his own groups, solidified his reputation as one of the most influential jazz pianists and composers of his generation.

“Dave Burrell crams a century of jazz history into every chugging stride episode and churning dissonance,” writes Francis Davis for Village Voice. “Encyclopedic as well as eccentric, he's a living treasure."

Based in Philadelphia since 1985, Burrell’s most recent work reflects a keen interest in his adopted hometown's historical role in the evolution of the jazz art form from its early ragtime and blues foundations. Philadelphia's Rosenbach Museum & Library commissioned a series of suites from Burrell, inspired by the museum’s Civil War archives.

For a special one-night only ensemble, Burrell is joined by bassist William Parker and fellow Philadelphians alto saxophonist Bobby Zankel (Cecil Taylor, Odeon Pope) and drummer Andrew Cyrille.
