about

"When Anthony Braxton first recorded his 1969 album of solo saxophone improvisations "For Alto", the concept of improvisational solo reed performances was still in its infancy. Since then it has become an art form onto itself, cluttered with the excesses of neophyte and seasoned veteran alike. Unfortunately, very few of these artists explore their instruments with the dedication to progression and feral intensity of John Butcher. Though his earlier work embraced a traditional jazz outlook, Butcher has taken great strides in moving further and further afield from the conventions of both jazz and improv musics.
With Invisible Ear, he has taken his boldest step yet, approaching a level of experimentation previously unheard of through the use of close-miking and amplification in startlingly unconventional manners."
DUSTED - Everett Jang Perdue.
