Everyone Orchestra this Weekend~

June 11th 2012

With the release of Matt Butler’s Everyone Orchestra studio debut, Brooklyn Sessions, most of the musicians from the Brooklyn Sessions will play this weekend in Colorado. To celebrate this release, Everyone Orchestra plays a three night run in Denver @ Quixotes on June 15-17.

On the album, Butler is joined by an all-star lineup of past collaborators and musical friends including drummer
Jon Fishman (Phish), keyboardist/pianist Marco Benevento , Al Schnier (moe.), Jen Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), saxophonist Jeff Coffin (Dave Mathews Band), guitarist Steve Kimock , and bassist Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green), and more. The recording features 8 improvised, conducted songs recorded in-studio, including improvised vocal tracks.

“It’s a sacred sandbox,” says Butler. “The stage a sacred place to share the music. You’re fully improvising, and the only preparation you can do is to be in the moment, the way an athlete is during a game. Not to withdraw into yourself, but to be engaged, to dodge and throw the ball.”
And Kimock loves it!
