John Butcher

Tenor and soprano saxophone player John Butcher was born in Brighton, UK, in 1954. His work ranges through improvisation, his own compositions, multitracked saxophone pieces and explorations with feedback and extreme acoustics. He is well known as a soloist, sometimes exploring unusual site-specific acoustics, and has released seven CDs of solo saxophone music. He has toured and broadcast in Europe, Japan, North America and Australia, and was featured, playing solo, in the BBC TV programme Date with an Artist. Recent collaborative projects include the quintet Anemone with trumpeter Peter Evans, the wind trio The Contest of Pleasures with Axel Dörner and Xavier Charles, and a very new trio with Gino Robair and John Edwards.
