The Jon Burr Band "Just Can''t Wait" CD/DVD features a stunning collection of original songs by leader/bassist/composer Jon Burr, with impassioned vocal performances by an all-star cast, and brilliant improvisations by world-class jazz musicians.
"Reaching out for the new while not letting go of the tried and true," according to https://www.tradebit.com, this collection of Burr originals encompasses a range of styles with jazz at the core. "Burr ... went beyond a Buddy Rich, Tony Bennett or Stan Getz because he was the songwriter and lyricist as well as a performer. Burr simply dared to take that extra step of creating and presenting original, unfamiliar material. These artists really had respect for the music... Throughout, it was clear this was not an ego trip but a group of musicians performing with a common goal of creating the best music with the highest standards of musical performance. Finally, someone had the courage to try something new within the traditions of jazz and popular music."
The DVD also features a "Meet the Artist" interview, opened and closed with solo bass performances by Jon Burr.
