About The Pittsburgh Collective - Works of David Sanford

"Sanford writes challenging charts steeped in jazz, funk,  and modern classical music. And his players tear through them like an elephant through a bag of peanuts."
-Alexander Gelfand, Jazziz, Jan/Feb 2008 (Critics' Choices for 2007)

"To call The Pittsburgh Collective a big band is a bit like calling the New York Philharmonic an opera outfit...A new kind of fusion is going on in their music, but also, perhaps, a new kind of analysis, in which the origins of jazz--the fusion of music a century ago--are being creatively explored."
-Paul Griffiths

Burleson performs Sanford's visceral, eclectic and brilliant music with this top-flight jazz ensemble, and contributes two extended improvised solos, on "Bagatelle" and "V-Reel." Sanford's stylistic palette encompasses modern classical within a large jazz ensemble sonority, with various forms--rhythm and blues, straight-ahead hard bop, so-called third stream, punk rock, funk, marches, waltzes, tangos, dance suites, etc--emerging, filtered through an emotionally charged, modern expressionist aural lens.
