2017 – SHIFT

 

 

 

 

 

‘The music on this CD is the result of four musicians with a background in jazz coming together to experiment and create music without the need for critical approval either from institutional oversight or industry-enforced norms and prerequisites. And because each is free to express himself as a collaborating individual without genre-based limitation, the music they create is ‘free’ music. As well as the analogue instruments, the music has input from the shapeshifted voice of the Ableton controller, a machine operated by George Lewis that records phrases and snippets of music in situ, digitally alters them and feeds them back into the music-making process, providing the musicians with another cue to which they can react. The music, as all music does, starts with an idea and the enthusiasm of the players to chase it, to play with it as well as to play it, to use their expertise and experience to de- and re-construct it, to improvise around it and eventually to reconcile it in a synthesis that satisfies them and gives the willing listener a new and exciting aural experience. This is music that liberates.’

Andrys Onsman

2016 – Sardinian Liturgy

Canto a tenore, a traditional Sardinian folk music can take a bit of getting used to: it’s like a polyphonic throat singing barbershop quartet. Sometimes the songs are as old as the island’s hills, other times the songs are spontaneous comments on what’s happening right here and now. This is the music that Paolo Angeli grew up with, and at first blush it would not seem to intersect with modern jazz. But Angeli is a musician who is not averse to pushing down barriers between genres and styles. Here is a musician, who when the normal six stringed guitar proved inadequate for his ideas, built one with 18 strings (six normal, eight transverse, and four suspended) incorporating hammers, pedals, motors and pick ups. Rob Burke (coordinator of jazz and popular music at Monash University) initiated and led a project to combine Angeli with three Australian jazz musicians and an Italian rhythm section, all of whom share a jazz sensibility and an openness to ideas and a passion for creativity, put them in a studio and press the record button.Recorded in November 2015 in the small but beautiful Tuscan town of Prato, the group used traditional Sardinian tunes as a base to experiment, improvise and collaboratively create new music that shimmers into unexpected and innovative directions. Some of the pieces are short, simple fragments of ideas, while others are complex and developed exploration of what’s possible, and all of it is unified by a sense of healing, a ritualistic, almost liturgical elevation of the soul, the music of a new generation of (pardon the pun) angels.

2015 Power of the Idea

Screen Shot 2015-04-08 at 11.47.58 pmSaxophonist/composer Rob Burke recorded a CD in New York last July with the acclaimed American pair of bassist Mark Helias and drummer Nasheet Waits –  both musicians considered archetypal improvisers on the New York scene –  together with Melbourne colleagues Paul Williamson (trumpet), Jordan Murray (trombone) and Paul Grabowsky (piano).

The concept of the album was based on original compositions that informed free improvisation. The overarching theme being the ‘power of the idea’ with spontaneous improvisations that were perceived to be genuinely ‘in the moment’ as distinct from pre-conceived material.

2014 Do True

Screen Shot 2015-05-04 at 5.52.20 amDo True with Robert Burke and Kenny Werner, came to fruition with the help of Dave Schroeder (director of Jazz at NYU). It was Schroeder who organised the recording and introduced Burke to brilliant New York jazz pianist Kenny Werner.

Discussions regarding the rhythm section that would be needed for the recording led to Werner suggesting musicians that he had a strong rapport with: Johannes Weidenmueller and Richie Barshay – an empathy that is evident in this recording.

The repertoire selected is a combination of Kenny Werner, Robert Burke and a beautiful tune by Paul Grabowsky.

2012 Live at Bennetts Lane

Screen Shot 2015-05-04 at 6.00.22 amRobert Burke, Tony Gould, Nick Haywood and Tony Floyd, well known names individually, together are one of Australia’s leading quartets.

With the breadth of experience and long standing connection being what it is, the quartet set their live performances alight. Now, recorded live for the first time, that flow and creativity which lifts this quartet above the rest, is captured in this expansive six track recording.

The selection of tracks was guided by the creativity within the performances of the group, and features compositions by Rodgers and Hart and Cole Porter alongside compositions by the Quartet.

“Live at Bennetts Lane” perfectly captures their definite live ensemble sound at its best, live on the bandstand.

Robert Burke – Tenor and Soprano Sax

Tony Gould – Piano
Nick Haywood – Bass
Tony Floyd – Drums

2010 Here (Rob Burke and Tony Gould)

Screen Shot 2015-05-04 at 6.06.46 amRob Burke (Sax) and Tony Gould (Piano) first recorded in the duet format in ‘96 (Gateway) followed by A Tin Roof For The Rain in ’99. They have also been performing regularly, for the last 15 years, together as a Quartet with Tony Floyd (Drums) and Nick Haywood (Bass). During this time the pair have created a steadfast foundation of musical understanding and expression.

The performance outcome of this musical relationship is the blend of a flexibility of ideas and which only time can nuture.  Burke and Gould have spent much time debating technical aspects, styles and musical concepts of their new release “Here”; where every note has its own reason for existing.

Here is the title composition and a melodic link for the improvisations which offers continuity to the recording. While some of the compositions are mostly improvised, this is not always the rule as composition and improvisation are, at times difficult to define.

We hope you enjoy the beauty of sound that lies within HERE.

2005 The Edge Of Today (Rob Burke)

the-edge-of-today-rbThe Edge Of Today aims to identify a sample of the jazz scene by mapping out the differing styles of jazz featuring five of Australia’s leading guitarists. With mainly original tracks this CD demonstrates the artistic, social and cultural diversity of each player.

Featuring Rob Burke -sax, bass clarinet, flute, Doug de Vries, Slava Grigoryan, Stephen Magnusson, Geoff Hughes, Peter Petrucci -guitars, Tony Floyd -drums, Nick Haywood -bass.

2003 Wide Eyed (Rob Burke Quartet)

wide-eyed-rob-burke1Robert Burke has been playing with members of this group for over 20 years, resulting in a strong musical understanding within the ensemble. The style of jazz (originals and jazz standards) is a result of influences from their own cultural and social “backyard” to produce an innovative and importantly, an Australian style of improvised music.

Tony Gould sets the scene which allows the rest of the group to create  compositions that exemplify the melodic quality of Rob Burke on  saxophones and alto clarinet, Tony Floyd’s drums and Nick Haywood’s  bass.

‘This is music I love to play with my friends because of their honesty and their freedom to create music. Importantly, this CD is about a group of musicians expressing their collective emotions and ideas at the moment of performance. Our goals do not include preconceived agendas and formulas, just spontaneity and simply – improvisation.’ Rob Burke

Wide Eyed was the Rob Burke Quartet’s first release.

2002 Ears For Civil Engines (Various Artists)

ears-for-civil-engines-rbThe debut release for Jazzhead, Ears For Civil Engines, has been re-mastered and re-released. This collection of 13 original tunes by Australian jazz luminaries includes outstanding individual and ensemble playing. This set has everything: cutting edge modern jazz, cool jazz, bebop, swinging blues and piano based mood pieces.

Ears For Civil Engines features Rob Burke, Julien Wilson, Sam Keevers, Paul Grabowsky, Scott Tinkler and Tim Stevens. An illustration of just how good Australian jazz talent is – great songs and great blowin’.

2000 Offline (Dodge)

offline-dodge-rbDodge’s jazz / groove ethos sees our intrepid explorers acoustically travel the more funky, soul side of jazz. Offline, the band’s CD debut, holds the door open for serious improvisation and their organic, spontaneous approach is free of pretensions.

There are no bittersweet chord clusters and no “look at me playing”. Just the soul of Rob Burke’s sax and Russell Smith’s trumpet and trombone, mixed with Tony Floyd’s savage back beat all woven together with Nick Haywood’s bass lines. Offline not only feels good but is good for you.

1998. Gateway (Robert Burke and Tony Gould)

gateway-rb-300x294Rob Burke released two duet records with Tony Gould including ‘A Tin Roof for the Rain’. Gateway, recorded in 1998 at Woodstock Studios was Rob Burke’s debut.

 

 

1997 Javabubbaboogaloo (Various Artists)

javabubbaboogaloo-299x300The third release from Jazzhead first hit the stores on 13 June 1997 and deserved eight of ten for its title alone. Now re-sequenced and re-mastered the stunning ARIA nominated Javabubbaboogaloo has been re-released. Featuring Ian Chaplin, James Sherlock, Rob Burke, Paul Williamson.

Javabubbaboogaloo showcases the talent of some of the best of the growing Melbourne scene’s hottest players in a mix-and-match line up that keeps your fingers snapping and your toes tapping with jazz grooves.

1997 A Tin Roof For The Rain (Rob Burke and Tony Gould)

tin-roof-for-rain-rb-300x291The pieces on this recording represent the playing and compositions of musicians at a particular point in time, for beyond the introduction of themes the music is spontaneous, in keeping with the African-American tradition.

By its very nature it is music of the moment. Why record at all then? Well, it’s fun to do, it’s a great learning experience, it is an historical record which helps us to understand where we came from, where we are now and possibly where we are going. There is also the possibility that listeners are as distinct from players may want to enjoy the experience more than once!

The pieces were chosen for their melodic and harmonic material and thus their potential for variation and ins some cases development. They come from a diversity of minds and styles, from the talented young pianist/composer Tim Stevens who is rich with musical languages, to Leonard Bernstein’s marvelous “Somewhere”, to pieces by Rob and myself.

The title of the CD comes from the late John Sangster who once wrote in a memorable letter. “G’day luv, have just bought meself a little Queenslander with a tin roof for the rain…” His ingenious turns of phrase, were like his playing, full of surprises and quirks yet always beautiful and humanly musical. I hope some of this attitude can be heard here.
