"Formidable" (NPR); "inventive" (Cadence Magazine); "precarious, dynamic, revolutionary … unable to be contained" (Nextbop) are some of the words used to describe George Burton.

Burton’s sound is an experience that connects a lost generation of listeners back to the integrity and originality of the music. Burton lived the “Philly experience” where alternative, hip-hop, R&B, straight-ahead jazz and avant-garde don’t just peacefully coexist but cross-pollinate.

This performance at the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage will be a special one. He will be performing tunes from his album "The Truth Of What I Am > The Narcissist" along with some new works slated to be recorded in 2017.

Joining him on the set will be saxophonist Tim Warfield, trumpeter Jason Palmer, bassist Pablo Menares, and drummer Wayne Smith, Jr.

"Burton’s debut is one of the most exciting debuts I have heard in years." ~ Nextbop
