Now, with the JON BURR BAND and his new, all original JUST CAN’T WAIT, he emerges as a powerhouse composer/lyricist and bandleader of great depth, poetic ingenuity and diverse musical contexts – all extremely accessible to music lovers of every genre. His tunes are rife with the palpable collective energies of the giants with whom he’s played and feel like instant standards. He brings them all to life through stunning arrangements and with a remarkable group of vocal talent, who are today’s best kept secrets and the stars of tomorrow: 2006 Jazz Mobile Vocal Award Winner, Ty Stephens; Carnegie Hall, Birdland and NY Pops headliner Hilary Kole; original Manhattan Transfer member Laurel Massé; and promising newcomers Yaala Ballin (of the Irving Berlin family tree) and Tyler Burr, daughter of the composer..
Burr has also recorded with Wynton Marsalis, Count Basie, Tony Bennett, Yo Yo Ma, Barbara Cook, Stephane Grappelli, Sir Roland Hanna, Bucky Pizzarelli, John Pizzarelli, Lainie Kazan, Dorothy Donegan, Chet Baker, Phil Woods, Buddy Rich, Louie Bellson, and the Hot Swing Trio.
