Retrospective 1961-2005: Solo Piano (Aug. 18, 2005)Burton GreeneThis is the final release of the precedent-setting recording sessions with Burton Greene that documented this artist's music in quintet (#339), trio (#345), and now solo settings.
This trilogy is an important milestone in Burton's career, spanning five decades of defining and redefining his very distinctive artistry. In the undertaking of this project, CIMP affirms that Burton Greene was at the top of his form and focus. And this solo recital confirms the originality, humor, and emotional maturity of this unique artist. As is the CIMP method, extensive notes give insight to both the music and the occasion, setting, and preparation. Ins And OutsBurton Greene, Ed Schuller, George SchullerThis is the second of three consecutive recordings documenting the music of Burton Greene.

Signs Of The TimesBurton Greene, Paul Smoker, Russ Nolan, George SchullerThis is Volume One of the results of a 3-day recording project devoted to the artistry of Burton Greene. This first set features Burton's music as played by a quintet (the following sessions are trio and solo) that handles some difficult charts with ease and improvisations with inspiration. Unique and identifiable, this is the first documentation of a notable occasion from a veteran artist at the top of his form. Recorded Aug. 16, 2005. Isms OutBurton Greene, Roy Campbell, Adam Lane, Lou GrassiPlaying the music of Bill Evans, Jim Hall, Ali Akbar Khan, and its own originals, the Burton Greene-Roy Campbell 4tet goes pretty straight ahead but without compromise as four strong instrumental voices document their music following an East Coast tour. The expressions and themes are exceptional. It's been almost two decades since Burton recorded in quartet and over 30 years since he recorded with trumpet. This is Roy's first recording with Burton. Recorded June 29, 2004. Peace Beyond ConflictBurton Greene, Mark DresserThis is surely one of pianist Burton Greene’s most playful and lyrical outings. A very engaging program with the formidable bassist Mark Dresser serving as both foundation and backboard to this delightful recording. Recorded July 19, 2001. ThropticsBurton Greene, Wilber Morris, Lou GrassiPianist Burton Greene's Trio presents a lively eclectic set of music ranging from contemporary rags to free form improvisation, all gloriously captured in audiophile real sound. Recorded July 30, 1998.
