Dave Burrell




Distinguished composer-pianist Dave Burrell says he performs because ‘it’s the only thing he knows how to do.’ And he does it brilliantly. His compositions have roots in blues, gospel tradition, and free jazz. A musician-in-residence at the Rosenbach Museum & Library, Dave Burrell performs new compositions at the Rosenbach of Early American Settlements of what is now the state of Oregon.
