Everyone Orchestra

April 19th 2012

Matt Butler’s Everyone Orchestra will release their studio debut, Brooklyn Sessions, on May 15 via Harmonized Records. 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), Steve Kimock , and bassist Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green), and more. The recording features 8 improvised, conducted songs recorded in-studio.

To celebrate this release, Everyone Orchestra will play a two night run in Denver @ Quixotes on June 15-16 with many of the players, including Kimock, who were part of the Brooklyn Sessions.

“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!
