Butcher Brown’s Triple Trey Is Out Now


Butcher Brown’s big band jazz-themed album Butcher Brown Presents Triple Trey Featuring Tennishu And R4ndzzo Big4nd has landed. The group’s rapper Tennishu had initially planned a straightforward hip-hop album but the direction changed and they made a collection inspired by both genres. Their cover of the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Unbelievable” combines both styles effortlessly.  The late Brooklyn MC’s song is the most accessible song on the album but the whole thing is an easy blend of rhyming with the band using the sound of a jazz orchestra to recreate electronic beats. Triple Trey has a visual component that embodies the spirit of jazz eclectism with artwork from Lou Beach who designed the cover for Weather Report’s 1977 fusion classic Heavy Weather and Butcher Brown’s previous #KingButch album. The vinyl version of Triple Trey will be released on November 11th in black and a limited edition blue which will have a 7″ with the 12″ containing two bonus songs, “Guitarmy” and “Peace.” This weekend they will perform at the Monterey Jazz Festival and next month they are part of the lineup at the Indy Jazz Festival in Indianapolis, Indiana. They have also shared a video for “Breevin.'”
