His dynamic compositions, with blues and gospel roots recall the tradition of Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton, and Duke Ellington. After majoring in music at the University of Hawaii, he enrolled at Berklee College of Music in Boston in 1961. After graduating with degrees in composition/arranging and performance in 1965, he moved to New York City, where he quickly established himself as one of the most innovative and original pianists collaborating with the emerging leaders in contemporary jazz.

During the last 30 years Dave Burrell has appeared on 106 recordings, 22 under his own name. Burrell is renowned for his many pivotal recordings with saxophonists such as Archie Shepp , Pharoah Sanders, Marion Brown and David Murray, to name a few.
