Heirs of Herbie Hancock Head Hunters band, Weather Report or Roy Hargrove amazing RH Factor project, Butcher Brown released #KingButch, their 8th studio album, on Concord Jazz Records. Faithful to their original influences – fusion music between contemporary hip-hop, jazz and 70’s funky groove, Butcher Brown releases an original album, with a powerfully original statement that reaches across divisions of genre, generation, ethnicity, and geography. Significantly, the new recording also reveals a side of Butcher Brown that’s been developing and is now in full-flower: a song-crafting, studio maturity on a par with their national reputation as an explosive live act.
Playing the balance between a raw energy and a delicate sophistication, improvising with a nervous and sensual jazz style, #KingButch is a balance of stylistic flavors—polished and raw, urban and country, North and South—offering a fluid, feel-good sonic journey.
