Recordings By Jon Burr's bands, including Trio, Quartet and Quintet
“Jazz is my first love. My life in jazz influences everything I do. I’ve been taught and influenced by the leaders I worked for, the players I’ve worked with, and the people I’ve hired. Musicians are special people.
I’ve come to love all kinds of music, and gotten involved with other aspects of it besides playing the bass.
Most of my playing these days consists of remote recording projects in conjunction with my arranging and production work at arrangerforhire.com, playing a few gigs (temporarily on hiatus!), and building websites (including this one). I’m especially attracted to orchestral and other large ensemble writing.
This site is mainly about my career as a performer and composer, with a blog about anything that strikes me as interesting, including food, spirituality, exercise, playing music, and anything else that comes to mind.
Thank you for visiting!”
