Since leaving his native Philadelphia for New York in 2003, jazz pianist George Burton has been pretty busy, in demand on the stages of Jazz at Lincoln Center and the Newport Jazz Festival. So busy, in fact, that it took him until 2016 to release his debut album, The Truth of What I Am > The Narcissist. Fortunately, it didn’t take him quite so long to follow it up, with his new album, Reciprocity.
Burton’s jazz is multidimensional. It incorporates influences from hip-hop and R&B, electronic music and indie rock into a surprisingly cohesive sound shaped by his mastery of vibe — a soulfulness that underlies all of his tunes, whether the surface feels more like hard bop, avant-garde explosiveness, or blissed-out atmospherics (like his cover of Sigur Rós’ “Ti Ki”).
