Matt Butler Matt Butler


Instrumental, experimental, improvisational, conscientious, sometimes avant-guard, bio-digital music.


Among the musicians successfully mining the field where groove meets jazz improv is Jacksonville's Matt Butler. Butler, a talented guitarist who frequently works in quartet with sax, bass, and drums, is committed to open form structures and attentive group meditations on spontaneous themes. This kind of laboratory setting can, with experience and dedication, produce mesmerizing art, and butler and company are well enough connected to the pleasures of funk that they have something to offer even audiences who might ordinarily run in terror at the idea of “free jazz.”
