Great violinist Charles Burnham, who has played with everyone from Living Colour to Medeski Martin and Wood to Norah Jones, played Brooklyn’s new, intimate The Owl Music Parlor last week (December 3). Burnham, who sang on several songs as well, was joined by Brandon Ross on acoustic guitar and Ben Goldberg on clarinet and contrabass clarinet, and they opened with a Wayne Shorter composition, “Fall.” The arrangements were beautiful, often delicate and at times even humorous. Ben Goldberg’s clarinet tone was outstanding and worked wonderfully with Burnham, who can coax some incredible tones from his beautiful black carbon fiber violin. During the set they were joined by vocalist for a number that incorporated a few of the lyrics to “This Land Is Your Land.” In addition to jazz, they dabbled in the blues as well, Burnham’s “King’s County Blues” which was, obviously, written about his hometown of Brooklyn.
