Video Premiere: Butcher Brown “Street Pharmacy” (Live)
Last month, Richmond, VA-based jazz-funk outfit Butcher Brown released their latest album, Camden Session, which chronicles the quintet’s time recording at Mark Ronson’s Zellig studio in England, and today we premiere a live video for one of the album’s tracks, “Street Pharmacy,” filmed at the Breeding Ground venue/recording studio in New York.
“‘Street Pharmacy’ came about at a time where 19-year-old DJ Harrison had just started college—a world he wasn’t prepared for,” says Butcher Brown keyboardist DJ Harrison. “It served as a predecessor to what life would bring ahead. Now—11 years later—it’s a reminder of where we came from, which will be fuel to get our projected destination.”
Along with Harrison, Butcher Brown features Corey Fonville on drums, Andrew Randazzo on bass, Marcus Tenney on trumpet and Morgan Burrs on guitar. The group’s instrumental compositions draw from an array of influences, from jazz and fusion to funk and hip-hop.
