Double bassist, composer, bandleader, promoter, and educator Euan Burton has been a lynchpin figure on the Scottish Jazz scene for nearly a decade, working also across a multitude of genres and collaborating with like-minded creative artists from around the globe. As well as being a first call bassist with many of Scotland's most high profile jazz artists, Burton has been seen and heard recently with many US heavyweights such as Ari Hoenig and Jonathan Kreisburg. His playing boasts a beautiful touch and warm tone, a measured assurance in his improvisations, and a solid foundation when in support mode. As a composer, Burton marries a wonderful blend of heart and mind, providing playful yet tricksy structures for which his band members take great flight. www.euanburton.com
