Those "reinterpretations" are abstract renderings that use nothing from Butcher's original works. Tonight Butcher performs at the Whistler to celebrate the final single and to formally announce the release of the album—anyone who preorders a copy will get a hand-screened poster (see below right).My Silence (with bass clarinetist Jason Stein), and he also performed this past summer in Reed's Myth/Science Assembly at the Chicago Jazz Festival. Reed, Stein, Jason Roebke, Jason Adasiewicz, Keefe Jackson, and Tim Daisy are the six musicians creating new pieces from Butcher's original works.
Tonight's free performance will feature a collaborative set by Butcher, Daisy, and guitarist Jordan Martins. Daisy and keyboardist Paul Giallorenzo will also play a duo set. Below you can hear the A side from Butcher's final installment in the Free Jazz Bitmaps single series.
