AT OVAL: Claudia Burson.
  • AT OVAL: Claudia Burson.
Steve Davison, himself one of Arkansas’s best musicians, calls Claudia Burson “a state treasure.” For many in Central Arkansas, she may be an undiscovered one, as the Fayetteville jazz pianist and instructor only rarely gets to these parts, usually playing the Afterthought in the Arkansas Jazz Heritage Society’s Monday Jazz Project. But that can all change on Saturday, July 16, when Burson brings her trio to Oval Gallery for the second show in the Arkansas Times Summer Music Series. Doors open at 7 p.m., and tickets are $25. Seating is limited, and the price includes beer, wine and hors d’oeuvres. The show will be smoke-free. Oval Gallery is at 201 W. Capitol Ave. Burson, who teaches at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, expresses the jazz piano tradition while singing in a unique, soulful style. Burson studied at the UA and at Berklee School of Music in Boston before performing throughout the country with such artists as Arnett Cobb and Don Wilkerson.
