Description from Lincoln Center:

“Burnt Sugar can be many things: lush, hypnotically psychedelic…avant garde orchestra, blazing funk band, and also a combination of the two.” – New York Music Daily

Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber is a sprawling band of musicians whose prodigious personnel allows to freely juggle a wide swath of the experimental soul-jazz-hip hop spectrum. “Arkestra Conductor Greg Tate says, “Burnt Sugar got the nerve to claim Sly Stone, Morton Feldman, Billie Holiday, Jimi Hendrix and Jean Luc Ponty as progenitiors. Our player-ranks include known Irish fiddlers, AACM refugees, Afro-punk rejects, unrepentant beboppers, feminist rappers, jitterbugging doowoppers, frankly loud funk-a-teers and rodeo stars of the digital divide.”

In “Any World I’m Welcome To,” Burnt Sugar subverts and lays claim to the Steely Dan songbook, with curation by guitar hero and conceptualist Vernon Reid.
