London Broil: John Butcher at The Stone

From All About Jazz:

On a sheer sonic level, John Butcher goes further into his instrument—and further out of it—than any of his monumental precursors in the iconoclast tradition of abstract British improvising. Not that he’s going to bury such icons as Terry Day, Trevor Watts, or Evan Parker; but as he demonstrated in solo performance last week at The Stone in Manhattan, this tenor and soprano saxophonist—trained in physics—is particularly well-attuned to the properties and propensities of the sound produced by his horns, apart from its customary dissection into elements of harmonic theory and acoustic principles, and takes it to places unknown to most listeners until now.
