John Burgess Big 5


We're working on it! Meanwhile, check out the upcoming Scottish Jazz Weekend programme here!

John Burgess Big 5 image

Burgess is a leading player in the renaissance of swinging jazz. A tenor saxophone player with a beautiful sound; and a clarinetist who can purr and excite in equal measure. This special, all-star band features Colin Steele (trumpet), alongside New Yorkers, Emmet Cohen (piano), and Bryan Carter (drums). They’ll play the music that 50’s New Yorkers flocked to hear, from Paul Gonzalves and Johnnie Hodges, to Stan Getz.
