Butcher / Binder
Under The Roof

Butcher / Binder: Under The Roof (Nuscope)
Label: Nuscope    
Released in: USA    

"This disc features Butcher on tenor and soprano saxophones and Binder on a fine Hamburg Steinway D concert grand and various preparations at DRS2 Studios in Zurich, Switzerland with engineer Martin Pearson, perhaps best known as Keith Jarrett's current engineer. As a result, this disc likely captures Butcher's finely-detailed sound as it has never been captured before. According to journalist Thomas Meyer, "Under the Roof suggests coherence (the last piece, sonically, returns to the first one), but above all, also suggests protection. Whether rapidly skittering or thoughtfully placed, the organic and discreetly balanced sounds in this manifold cycle of fifteen exceedingly transparent images appear fresh and new."-Nuscope

8-page booklet with liner notes from Zurich-based journalist Thomas Meyer.
