Greene Trio, Burton: On Tour (ESP)
Label: ESP    
Released in: Italy    

The Chicago-born pianist Burton Greene first made his way to NY in 1962, just as the New Music movement was beginning to gain momentum. The following year he and bassist Alan Silva formed the Free Form Improvisation Ensemble (considered to be the first spontaneous composition group). This historic live recording was originally released on ESP-Disk in 1967."

From the original liner notes: 'This music is from the first new music tour sponsored by the New York State Council on the Arts... Appearing on the tour were Sun Ra and His Solar Arkestra, Giuseppi Logan Quartet, Patty Waters, Ran Blake, and my trio consisting of Steve Tintweiss (bass), Shelly Rusten (percussion), and myself on piano and piano harp. The tour found people largely unexposed to this music. They were often shaken up. Some were deeply moved. Those who came for a total body and soul experience were rewarded with the vibrations. The people who constantly needed the theoretical approach or 'road maps' were not ... We had the audacity to tell people that not only was our approach to music valid but that often the results were as musically complex and often more so than, let's say Beethoven. The music here is from the best performances of the trio at Syracuse University, Buffalo, and Ithaca-Cornell.'-Burton Greene
