'The Urge to Burge'
Caber 012


is a collection of John’s wonderful and highly evocative original compositions ranging from the most sumptuous of haunting ballads through sun-flecked bossa nova’s to full-blooded hard-bop workouts. It features alongside John’s powerful tenor saxophone, flute and bass clarinet, the exceptional talents of guitarist Kevin MacKenzie and the unparalleled rhythm team of bassist Mario Caribe and drummer John Rae.

Artist Information:

Since moving to London in 1987 John Burgesss has toured extensively throughout Europe, Scandinavia and the Middle East, performing and recording with many of this country’s finest jazz musicians such as Alan Skidmore, Harry Beckett and Jim Mullen.

In 1993 John enrolled at Berklee School of Music in Boston, where he studied with George Garzone and Jerry Bergonzi before moving to San Francisco to take on the hugely competitive Bay Area jazz scene. In 1997 he recorded the highly acclaimed 'THE BEAUTIFUL NEVER' with Theo Saunders, Henry Franklin and Willie Jones III at the legendary Sage and Sound Studios in Hollywood before returning to Scotland.
