Butcher Brown – Camden Session

Via Gearbox Records “Introducing Butcher Brown’s brand new direct-to-disc album, available on Vinyl, CD, and Digital. Following on from previous release Live At The Vagabond (2017) and Bandcamp digital exclusive AfroKuti: A Tribute To Fela (2018), Camden Session is a snapshot of the band’s explosive energy, groove-heavy sequences, and unrivaled togetherness. Their playing is modern and innovative, yet contains rich echoes of Weather Report, Return to Forever, early Earth Wind and Fire, and Zappa.

DJ Harrison is broadly seen as the visionary in an albeit egalitarian band. His keys provide the harmonic colours around which drummer Corey Fonville’s (Christian Scott, Nicholas Payton) muscular delivery and bassist Andrew Randazzo’s effortless cool pulsate. Multi-instrumentalist Marcus Tenney on saxophone/trumpet and Morgan Burr’s guitar complete the quintet.

Recorded at Mark Ronson’s Zelig Studios and cut live to disc at Gearbox Records in London using an all-analogue signal path. Mixed and engineered by the legendary Tony Platt. No edits, no overdubs.”
