Born with a natural talent for visual art, Aaron Burnett began to study classical saxophone at the age 11. After attending the University of North Carolina at Greensboro for Classical and Jazz Performance (1999-2001), he relocated to Berklee College of Music in Boston for Classical Composition (2005-2008), graduating with a degree in Professional Music. Burnett has always stressed the importance of establishing a unique sound for himself while in college, studying classical Baroque composition techniques, advance harmony, world music, and atonal composition.
Since graduating from the Berklee College of Music, Aaron has performed extensively with The Big Machine, sharing the stage with world-renowned jazz artists such as Vijay Iyer, Teri Lyne Carrington, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and more. He has also toured with three time Grammy winner Esperanza Spalding, and plays on her new album “12 Little Spells.”
He has performed with many renowned musicians such as Vijay Iyer, Terri Lyne Carrington, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Michelle Rosewoman, Jeff Tain Watts, and Kim Thompson, and toured with three-time Grammy winner Esperanza Spalding in her 2012 world tour with Radio Music Society. Burnett retains true nature of jazz in his music and his playing, always searching for new ways of interpreting the music while remaining modern and consistent with the times we live in.
