As we unwrap the kraft paper on today’s act, let’s get one thing straight right away: Butcher Brown is a band not a person…and one hell of a band at that! Since 2015 Butcher Brown has made fine cuts into progressive jazz fusion, producing a charcuterie of hip-hop, funk, rock and soul, a sound that’s landed them opening spots for Kamasi Washington, a touring partnership with Lettuce, as well as KUTX heavy rotation folks like Natalie Prass, Foxygen, and Jack White.
Their Roy Ayers meets Mahavishnu Orchestra meets Ronnie Laws meets Bob James meets P-Funk and J Dilla sound can be enjoyed on any day, and while their live shows have been pushed back to the fall (at the legendary Blue Note Jazz Club, no less) Butcher Brown has been keeping themselves sane with their #MothershipMonday series, a set of remotely recorded covers and a few outstanding originals. So ease off the pressure just a bit with this Southern hip-hop influenced self-referential bop, “King Butch”!
