New duo recording !
YouTube seemed the best way of sharing this first example of my musical duets with the excellent guitarist Jean-Luc Roumier. It’s a Jimmy Webb song that I’ve always loved but have never sung before. Hope you like it too. Give the bass chance by listening with headphones or proper speakers and a thumbs up on YouTube never hurts !
Listen to “The Moon’s A Harsh Mistress” on the videos page….
2 Peter Butler Trio concerts coming up !
This Friday March 31st in the port of Lorient at the big friendly “Baleine Déshydratée” at 9pm and Friday April 7th at the original “Baleine” in Quimper. Many of my own compositions + jazz and soul favourites re-arranged and explored by the super improvisations of drummer Marc Delouya and keyboard wiz Sylvain Duthuilllé.
