Richmond, Virginia-based Butcher Brown debuts at the Crystal Bay Casino at 10 p.m. Sunday, July 2, in a free Red Room show.
Butcher Brown is an up-to-the minute throwback to the great progressive jazz bands of the ’60s and ’70s. They are a hard-working band in an era where most groups are fleeting assemblages, together only long enough to record. Their organic coherence emerges from long collaboration as a group of equals rather than a top-down, leader/sideman lineup. They are building their audience by any means necessary, combining a conventional, label-oriented approach with releasing “underground” tapes, disciplined rehearsal and engaging, adventurous performance.
