American jazz pianist, born February 10, 1934, Louisville, Kentucky, USA; died January 25, 2013, New York City. Burton is a pianist who began playing professionally in Louisville in the '50s. He started with Rahsaan Roland Kirk in 1953, and toured with him through the Midwest for six years. One of Kirk's earliest Argo albums included a Burton composition.
