"Open Field + Burton Greene  Flower Stalk"  Cipsela 002 
José Miguel Pereira--Double Bass,  Joăo Camőes--Viola, Mey, Percussiion,  Marcello Dos Reis--Nylon String and Prepared Guitars, Voice,  Burton Greene--Piano, Prepared  Piano, Percussion

Through facebook I got in touch and connected with these fine young Portugese musicians: Open Field String Trio.  We've had such surprising and gratifying results from our two tours together and this eventual recording!   I'm grateful that the free improvisation seeds from the early 1960 groups including The Free Form Improvisation Ensemble (1962--'65) that I formed with Alan Silva have spread around the world, and are just as alive as ever as evidenced by the music with these fine, young, dedicated musicians.. As you can hear dynamics, and subtlety are much in evidence here!

"Fidelity to the principles that guided this meeting is complete: there is proper soil, although all find spaces to be heard individually, and even the said agreement as regards the instrumental combinations - in this case, viola, piano, guitar , bass - is contradicted by interpolating, and extensive, timbre and texture work by pianistic preparations and guitarrísticas, use of drums or vocals and even the introduction of some ethnicist strokes by a mey Turkish flute. It follows a magnificent treatise on improvisation, confirming all that good ever heard of Joao Camőes, Marcelo dos Reis and José Miguel Pereira and ennobling this mythical figure who is Burton Greene, man for whom the concept of freedom is still alive."

"A 39 Year Reunion Celebration"
Studio 234 CD 011 (2014) Burton Greene-- Piano, Laurence Cook--Drums

Laurence is a legendary drummer from the Boston area. We had some great playing experiences in the late 1960's and hadn't seen each other or played together since then. Pianist Eric Zinman got us together for a spontaneous gig on his house concert series which he sensitively recorded. I'm amazed at how tuned in and intuitive Laurence is to my music after all these years! Even without rehearsal, it's as if we've been playing together all this time!
    "Lamentation" (by Greene/Rollig) is quite lovely, a poignant ballad that I found most touching. "Mark IV/(1962-2005)" is an extraordinary duo excursion, where the piano and drums play together as one tight force completing each other's lines, increasing & decreasing in tempo in a most organic way and ending in a most sublime way. This disc sounds like one of the most sympathetic duos I've heard, they sound as if they have playing together forever. It can't be any better than that." - Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery Review

Available for only 10 euros plus 2 euros mailing costs.

Burton Greene with R*Time: Burton's Time
 
CIMP CD #400 (2014)

Some of my latest compositions and co-compositions with Silke Röllig.  With great NYC musicians: Reut Regev--trombone, Igal Foni--drums, Adam Lane--bass, Michael Attias--saxophones.
    "On 'Burton's Time ' he has surrounded himself by the R * Time group of Israel trombonist Reut Regev, with her husband Igal Foni on drums and bassist Adam Lane. That's a trio that is both flexible, swings like hell and the compositions of Greene (and his writing partner Silke Rollig) plays as if they have never done anything else!"  (Review by Herman te Loo in Jazzflits magazine)

                "Retro electronics for this time!
Amazing and strong vintage synth and keys duo improvisations by free jazz pioneers Alan Silva and Burton Greene, still exploring and pushing boundaries after half a century of no compromise careers."




Narada Burton Greene:   “Live at Kerrytown House” 
CD and Vinyl   on NoBusiness Records: NBCD 39  A magic recording, great piano, and great atmosphere:  Some of my best solo work to date on recording!   My recent compositions, co-compositions and arrangements with Silke Röllig, Bill Gerhardt, Enrico Pieranunzi. 
            “In many ways we’re now hearing a vastly sourced language clearly rendered and distilled to its essence.  We hear Burton Greene as Burton Greene: a school unto himself performing improvised concertos sans orchestra.  These concertos may have flashes of boogie woogie in their bouncy loping themes (Röllig’s bright “Freebop” tunes) or a reserved atonality, but they are always imbued with an undercurrent of lush, smart romanticism. ”  Liner notes by Clifford Allen.
