Poster_FINAL_outlinesA very exciting announcement:  On March 11, 2014, Black February director Vipal Monga and Paul Miller, aka DJ Spooky, that Subliminal Kid will co-host a screening of the documentary in Baltimore at the Maryland Institute College of Art’s Brown Center Falvey Hall. The two will hold a post-screening conversation about Butch, his role in the evolution of jazz, and his influence on other musical styles, from big band jazz to funk to electronic and symphonic works.

Butch appears on the Stuzzicadenti record, an album of experimental works by Diego Cortez, produced by DJ Spooky. He convinced Butch to play Cornet on one of the tracks, and one of the famed wind-up music boxes also appears on the record.

searchThe screening is part of Paul Miller’s Music + Art film series,  which looks at music, art, nature, drugs and how it plays it part in our culture. The series continues every Tuesday until March 11, and includes such stunning works as Wild Style, Slam, and How to Make Money Selling Drugs.

The screening will begin at 7:30 pm and 10 pm and admission is free to the general public. For more details, please visit the MICA website.
