JD Allen describes what it’s like to be in a Conduction. Here, Butch composes some funk with the Nublu Orchestra, featuring Kenny Wollesen on drums.
The first Conduction, as described by Greg Tate, Brandon Ross and Howard Mandel. That seminal performance featured John Zorn, Christian Marclay, Zena Parkins, Tom Cora and Brandon, among others.
Here’s a clip from Black February. Butch describes the purpose of Conduction: not just to make music, but to drive for something much deeper.
Butch will be conducting the Nublu Orchestra in the East Village every Monday night this month as part of Nublu’s 10th anniversary celebration. Two sets every week. Funk like you’ve never heard it before.
Butch will be teaching at this year’s Lisbon Jazz Summer School, between July 16 and 21. It’s a unique opportunity to spend a week with the maestro, learning his technique and exploring music in new ways. Details are at the CCB Lisbon Jazz site for those interested in attending. Deadline for applications is June 30.
